There is no functionality for posting project cost accrual on purchase receipts. Such functionality is available for items though parameter ‘Accrue liability on product receipt’ in ‘Item model group’. Also, for procurement category though parameter ‘Accrue purchase expense on receipt’ in procurement category policy rule. But both do not work correctly for project cost. These is a workaround for this scenario which details are explained here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/unified-operations/financials/accounts-payable/project-cost-accrual-purchase-receipts But this workaround is not very good. It is fine for a project cost tracking, project budget control and so on. But from accounting point of view is not very correct because the cost posting is according to the inventory posting setup (Purchase expenditure, un-invoiced) but not project ledger posting setup. The other reason this scenario is not exhaustive is missing purchase receipts date in project transactions. Without these dates even these are posted project cost accruals in ledger they cannot be reconciled with the project module.
