The bank statement processing function lets you generate incoming and outgoing payments, and perform internal, and external, reconciliation. By entering bank statement details, either automatically or manually, you can create transactions that have not yet been posted, such as incoming payments from a customer or notifications of clearance of payments to a vendor.

Bank statement processing supports the following scenarios:

  • Creating, posting, and internal reconciliation of those business partner incoming and outgoing payments made by direct debit or bank transfer and not already entered in SAP Business One

  • Posting and internal reconciliation of interim accounts used in payments with the payment means of bank transfer (via either the payment wizard or manual payment)

  • Posting and external reconciliation of bank debits and credits, for example, bank handling charges and interest payments

  • External reconciliation of transactions already posted in SAP Business One, for example, by manual payments or the payment wizard
