Partner Bank Type for multiple supplier bank accounts

Partner Bank Type Functionality for multiple Supplier Bank Accounts

Background:

It is normal for suppliers to have multiple bank accounts whereby they may request payments for invoices to be made to designated accounts through Bank Transfer. Hence, there should be a way by which the Invoice processor should be able to earmark the supplier payee bank account for payment of invoices in the event there are multiple bank accounts.

Solution:

The Partner Bank type functionality allows the selection of desired supplier payee bank account for Invoice processing and payments.

Prerequisites:

  • Payment Method is “D” or Bank Transfer.

  • Supplier has multiple bank accounts.

  • The supplier payee bank accounts should be maintained in the “Payment Transactions” tab of the Business partner master data.

At the time of Invoice creation for the particular Vendor, the Partner Bank type will be available for input.

If the Partner Bank type is left blank, the system will by default select the Payee Bank account maintained topmost in the Vendor master data (in this case ID:001). Hence it is recommended that the frequently used Payee Bank Account be maintained in the topmost line.

If the other bank account is required to be selected as the Payee Bank Account as per supplier request, the same should be explicitly entered during Invoice processing.

Please note that the Payee Bank Account can also be altered by modifying the Payment Proposal before scheduling the actual Payment Run.

Conclusion:

We can thus draw the conclusion that the payee bank account can be controlled/altered both by the Invoice processor at the time of invoice creation through the Partner Bank Type and by the Payment Processor by editing the Payment proposal before scheduling the actual payment.

      I'm not seeing the partner bank type in my S/4HCEs system, has it been removed/deprecated?

      Hi,

      thanks for the explanation. Question is, is there a possibility to apply different bank accounts automatically? Let´s assume depending on the company code?
