You read it here first! Microsoft Dynamics NAV R2 will deliver exciting new features to support cash management for our customers and prospects.
What it really means for customers
The bottom line is increased productivity – for all our customers – in almost any segment! The new Cash Management features in Microsoft Dynamics NAV R2 will automate and improve the cash management processes that are vital for all our customers regardless of the business they’re in.
What features are introduced to enable this?
SEPA CREDIT TRANSFER
A new feature is introduced that enables the user to export payment data to an electronic bank file in SEPA compliant format. This gives the user the possibility to integrate electronically with any bank in the Single European Payment Area and get higher efficiency in the payment process end-to-end.
Also, when payment instructions to the bank are managed directly in the system the user gets better control over the payment process and the ability toenhance cash flow due to SEPA rules about dates.
SEPA DIRECT DEBIT
A new feature called SEPA Direct Debit Collections, which provides an efficient way to handle customer’s payment collections through your preferred bank in the Single European Payment Area (SEPA) with less manual entry of data and effective mandate handling.
The feature allows users to collect money from their customers in a seamless connected way with the invoicing process, minimizing the order to cash lead time and increasing their cash management efficiency.
A new tool that enables partners to import SEPA compliant schemas (ISO 20022) into Microsoft Dynamics NAV and export the desired xml tags in an xmlport ready format. This gives the partner an excellent starting point for building up new xmlport to handle SEPA format variations for its customers.
Also, when handling the xml schema, relevant information about each tag is displayed enabling filtering mandatory tags and attributes.

Your Cash Management team
This is really something we have been waiting for a long time! Good work, NAV Team!
Great to hear that!!
Since I'm currently working on a global project to integrate banking Information, I would like to know whether and how SWIFT format (like the MT940 bank statement) is part of this new solution.
Can someone give me some information about that upfront?
Thanks for the feedback - appreciated.
About future formats: at this point in time we are contemplating camt.053.001.02 - the XML-based SEPA bank statement. Would be interesting to hear your perspective on this file type. What is the uptake on camt. in your geographical market?
The current North America Bank Rec. pages/process are different from the WW version. Can you provide more detail on how the two versions will be harmonized in R2? Will the auto-reconcile and statement upload features be included for North America?
Thank you, looking forward to the new release!
Reply to Rob: Thanks for your comment and questions. The new cash management features that we are delivering for NAV2013 R2 are on W1-level - also the functionality that you explicitly mention. It is not the ambition in this release to change existing tables that are purely local - our ambition is to concentrate our resources to offer more generic cash management features to the benefit of all countries.
In those markets where NAV for historical reasons offer local cash management tables instead of W1(this is the situation in e.g. the Netherlands, Belgium, North America, UK etc.) you can consider the new W1-features coming in NAV2013 R2 as parallel features: it is up to you if you want to make them available for the user or not. Alternatively, you also have the possibility to reimplement in local features.
Long time waiting for this automation process in Bank Recon, It's very nice to see such amazing thing.
Gr8 Job & Keep going.
This module has really been the missing link in getting NAV out to the smaller customers. Sure 3rd party add-ons have been available. But when such functionality is standard in other system, then that extra cost has sometimes been difficult to sell. And the way it has been done looks really nice. Thank you.
