Bill of Exchange Payment Requests: Special Features
A bill of exchange payment request, (that still awaits acceptance by the customer) is marked as a noted item in the customer account and the special G/L account for bills of exchange receivable. No transaction figures are updated. Nor are any open items yet cleared, since the customer may not accept the bill of exchange or choose to modify it.
The payment program issues the bill of exchange payment request (bill of exchange without acceptance). It also copies the document number of the bill of exchange payment request into the invoice line items that are to be cleared with the bill of exchange. See the figure below.
The bill of exchange is accompanied by a payment advice, which informs the customer about which invoices should be paid with the bill.
