The setup function of the bank accounts is used to characterize those bank accounts with which payment operations must be recorded.

The setup of payment transactions is used to define the characteristics and the operation methods of the different payment transactions used by the company:

  • general characteristics: sense (receipt or expense), payment method (transfer, cheque…)
  • entry screen: displayed fields, fields with mandatory entry,
  • accounting stages and grouping methods: bank posting, cash posting.

STEP 1: Select the payment entry screen (RECCH).

Navigation :-  All > Setup > A/P-A/R Accounting > Payment entry type

Payment/Receipt Entry function is used to:

  • Enter a payment and associate it with an invoice/order,
  • View all the entered payments, by payment transaction,
  • Generate a journal by payment entered, or to know the grouping/posting stages that remain to be carried out,
  • View all the payment journals already generated with respect to this payment.

Select the payment entry screen which you want to use for the transaction.

Then click on the Entry tab and select the Bank ‘Mandatory’ checkbox. And then Save and Validate it.


STEP 2: Select the customer or supplier for whom you want to set the default bank account.

Navigation :-  All > Common Data > BPs > Customers (or Suppliers)

Select NA009 and click on the Financial Tab and then assign NA1US to the ‘Payment Bank’ field and Save it.

Here, we have taken Customer ‘NA009’ to setup the default bank account.

Then click on the Financial and then assign ‘NA1US’ to the ‘Payment Bank’ field and Save.


STEP 3: Create a Payment/Receipt.

Navigation :-  All > A/P-A/R Accounting > Payments > Payment/Receipts

Create a new Cash Receipt using the RECCH payment entry screen.

Enter the ‘Site’ and ‘Customer’ for which you have setup the default bank account.

Then tab to the ‘Bank’ Field. Note the Bank Setup for the Customer will default in the field.

Here, we have entered Site ‘NA011’ and Customer ‘NA009’ and we get the bank ‘NA1US’ which we have set of that customer.
