Make Payment Suggestions


2024/02/12 • 7 min. to read
You start the Payment Suggestion in a Payment Journal (Payment Journals and Cash Receipt Journals). Depending on which suggestion you start, the Vendor Payment Suggestion, Customer Payment Suggestion, or Employee Payment Suggestion window opens. The parameters define how the open entries are determined for the payment suggestion, how they are grouped by customer, vendor, or employee, and which data is written to the journal lines. The following section describes the available parameters:

Find Payments:

.
Last Payment DateThe payment suggestion only considers entries whose due date is before or on this date. Only entries for which no value is entered in the field On Hold are taken into account.
Find Payment DiscountsIndicator that the payment discount date is taken into account when searching for available payments. Instead of the field Last Due Date, the field Last Payment Discount Date is taken into account. If the option Consider Payment Discount Tolerance is activated, the Discount Tolerance is also taken into account.
Last Payment Discount DateIndicator that the payment discount date is taken into account when searching for possible payments. Instead of the field Last Due Date, the field Last Cash Discount Date is taken into account.
Last Payment Discount DateIf the indicator Find Payment Discount is set, this field (and not the field Last Due Date) is taken into account for filtering by payment discount date. If the field is empty, the field Last Due Date is used to find the items.
Check Other Journal BatchesSpecifies whether to exclude payments that are already included in another journal batch from new suggested payments. This helps avoid duplicate payments.
Use Vendor PriorityIndicator that the Priority field on the vendor card determines the order in which the vendor entries are suggested for payment. This field is available only for payment suggestions in payment journals. Payments are made until the amount in the field Available Amount (LCY) is consumed.
Available Amount (LCY)Amount available for payments to vendors.

Note

Payments to vendors are made (ranked according to vendor priority) until the amount is used up.

Consider Payment Discount ToleranceIf this field is set, the payment discount tolerance date of the entries is taken into account in the calculation, except if the field Block payment tolerance is set on the vendor/customer card. If the Use Payment Discount field is also set, the system filters not only on the payment discount date but also on the payment discount tolerance date when searching for possible (future) payments.
Calculate Posting Date from Applies-to-Doc. Due DateSpecifies if the due date on the purchase invoice will be used as a basis to calculate the payment posting date.
Applies-to-Doc. Due Date OffsetSpecifies a period of time that will separate the payment posting date from the due date on the invoice. Example 1: To pay the invoice on the Friday in the week of the due date, enter CW-2D (current week minus two days). Example 2: To pay the invoice two days before the due date, enter -2D (minus two days).
Starting Document No.Document number for the first line of the payment suggestion.

If the indicator New Doc. No. per Line is not set, this number is applied to every journal line.
New Doc. No. per LineIndicates that the journal lines are numbered sequentially (starting from the number in the field Starting Document No.).

  • Non-SEPA Credit Transfer
  • SEPA Credit Transfer
  • SEPA Direct Debit (only available in cash receipt journals)

Note

If the field is empty, you must manually specify the payment type in the journal for each line. For the SEPA Credit Transfer and SEPA Direct Debit payment types, only lines with the ISO currency code "blank" or "EUR" are included in the payment suggestion.
. If you select the option Credit Transfer Suggestion, the system will try to create a credit transfer in the following order
  • SEPA Credit Transfer (if the rules of the external bank account search apply (IBAN, country/region code, SWIFT code available) and the company's bank account contains a SEPA credit transfer scheme. For more information, see Bank Account Setup.
  • Non-SEPA Credit Transfer if your bank account has a non-SEPA credit transfer scheme.
If you choose the option Direct Debit Suggestion, the system searches for existing transactions of the customer with this currency code. The system tries to create a Direct Debit in the following order
  • SEPA Direct Debit (if the rules of the external bank account search apply and the company's bank account contains a SEPA Direct Debit Scheme. For more information, see Bank Account Setup.
If a transaction is found, the payment type and the external bank account code of the transaction are suggested. If no transaction is found, the system tries to determine the external bank account and payment type according to the rules of the external bank account search. The external bank account search, especially with the option Last Transaction/Main Bank Account, in combination with direct debit/credit transfer suggestion, should provide the best results in most cases. For more information, see NCPE Payments Export Setup.
