Belgian Electronic Payments

In the electronic banking module in Business Central, you can make domestic, international, SEPA, and non-Euro SEPA electronic payments.

Electronic payment Description
Domestic These payments are in the local currency (LCY) and are processed by a local financial institution for beneficiaries who have accounts that have a local financial institution. The validity of the bank account numbers will be verified by Business Central.
International These payments are either in foreign currencies or in LCY and are processed by a local financial institution for beneficiaries who have accounts that have foreign financial institutions. The validity of the bank account numbers will not be verified by Business Central.
SEPA These payments are in euro and are processed in countries/regions that accept SEPA payments. The validity of the bank account numbers will be verified by Business Central.
Non-Euro SEPA These payments are in currency other than euro and made to a country/region outside the European Economic Association (EEA). The validity of the bank account numbers will be verified by Business Central.

In electronic banking, because the standard for electronic payments is different for countries/regions, electronic payments created in Business Central can only be processed by financial institutions in Belgium. For international payments, the local financial institutions will then have to process the payment with the foreign institutions.

Note

Credit memos cannot be processed separately because payments must not have a negative balance. To process a credit memo, the credit memo must be added to one or more invoices by summarizing payments.

Before you can make electronic payments, you must set up use electronic banking in Business Central.

Correcting Payment Lines

You must correct all errors before you can post the electronic payment lines. You can correct payment lines in the following ways.

Correction Description
Add a payment journal line If the payment journal already contains many lines and you want to add an additional line, you can enter the journal line manually. For example, if you want to reimburse a credit memo to a customer. These types of customer payments are not suggested automatically by the Suggest Vendor Payments batch job.
Edit a payment journal line If you have not assigned a bank account to the payment journal or if you have not specified a preferred bank account on the Vendor card, you will have to manually enter this information on each journal line before posting the journal. If you specify a bank account for a vendor, the bank account will be copied to all payment journal lines for that vendor. For more information, see Set Up Electronic Banking.
Delete a payment journal line The Suggest Vendor Payments batch job creates payment suggestions for all vendors matching the specified criteria. If you want to prevent payment for a specific vendor ledger entry or vendor, you can delete the corresponding journal lines.
