Electronic Bank statement Process Flow Chart

Electronic bank statement overview:


1. It is an electronic document sent by the bank which gives details of the transactions done by the account holder. 2. The electronic document can be remitted by the bank in the following formats SWIFT, Multicash, BAI etc. 3. This statement is used in SAP to do an automatic reconciliation. 4. The statement is uploaded in SAP and it clears the various Bank clearing accounts such as the Check out, Check in account to the main bank account. In our scenario we have the following bank GL codes (Sub accounts) for our Bank:330 332 331 SBT Bank Main account a/c SBT Check Issued Out SBT Check Received

Checks issued out to vendors will be credited to GL code 332 SBT Check Issued Out which is a clearing account. Similarly Checks Received from customer is debited to GL code 331 SBT Check Received which is a clearing account.

Electronic Bank Statement-MT940 Format

When the bank statement is uploaded in SAP the following will happen:For checks issued out based on checks cleared in the bank account the following entry will be passed automatically. GL code account description Debit /Credit 332 SBT Check Issued out Debit 330 SBT Bank Main account a/c Credit For Checks Received in based on checks cleared in the bank account the following entry will be passed automatically. GL code account description Debit /Credit 331 SBT Check Received Credit 330 SBT Bank Main account a/c Debit Thus after uploading the bank statement in the system, the Main bank account i.e. GL code 330 SBT Bank Main account a/c will exactly match with the balance shown in the bank. All the clearing accounts having balances will be the reconciliation items. Manual bank statement In case the bank is not able to give an electronic statement then the statement can be manually entered in the manual bank statement and uploaded.

Configuring the Electronic Bank Statement


Create House Bank Transaction Code FI12 In the SAP system, you use the bank ID and the account ID to specify bank details. These specifications are used, for example, for automatic payment transactions to determine the bank details for payment.

Define your house banks and the corresponding accounts in the system under a bank ID or an account ID.

Electronic Bank Statement-MT940 Format

Electronic Bank Statement In the following activities you make all the settings necessary for electronic bank statements. Make Global Settings for Electronic Bank Statement

In this activity you make the global settings for the account statement. There are four main steps to be carried out: 1. Create account symbol Specify G/L accounts (such as bank, cash receipt, outgoing checks) to which postings are to be made from account statement.You assign account symbols to the G/L account numbers. These are required for the posting rules in step 2. 2. Assign accounts to account symbols Define postings to be triggered by possible transactions in the account statement (such as bank transfer, debit memo). In the posting specifications debit -> credit that you define here, use the account symbols from step 1, not the G/L account numbers. This prevents similar posting rules being defined several times, the only difference between them being the accounts to which postings are made. 3 Create keys for posting rules Assign posting rules to possible transactions in account statement file. A list of assignments where one external transaction code is assigned to one posting rule is called a transaction type. 4 Create a transaction type Assign bank details, for which the account statements are to be imported, to a transaction type. All the house bank accounts at a particular bank are usually assigned to the same transaction type.

1. Create account symbols In this activity you create the account symbols that you later need for defining the posting specifications. Before the posting rule is used, the account symbols are replaced with the relevant accounts to which posting is to be made. Define an ID for each account symbol & enter a description in the text field.

Create the account symbols BANK and CASH RECEIPT so that you can later define a posting rule for cash receipt.

2. Assign accounts to account symbols In this activity you define the account determination procedure for each individual account symbol. Define postings to be triggered by possible transactions in the account statement (such as bank transfer, debit memo). In the posting specifications debit -> credit that you define here, use the account symbols from step 1, not the G/L account numbers. This prevents similar posting rules being defined several times, the only difference between them being the accounts to which postings are made. 3. Define G/L Accounts to Account Symbols

To avoid having to define a separate account symbol for every single house bank account (with a different G/L account in each case), the G/L account field can contain a masked output. The masking is done using ++++++ for the main bank account. For the sub accounts all the other digits are masked except the last one. For Bank charges the actual General ledger account is entered. Note that masked entries (using +) are always based on a ten character account number. If you are using a shorter account number (six characters, for example), the entry must be right-aligned.

Click 4. Create keys for posting rules In this activity you enter descriptions for the necessary posting rules. Each posting rule represents a business transaction from the SAP System that is included in the account statement, such as: Incoming check Credit memo Debit memo etc.

Assign posting rules to possible transactions in account statement file. A list of assignments where one external transaction code is assigned to one posting rule is called a transaction type.

5. Define posting rules In this activity you create posting specifications for each posting rule. You use the posting specifications to specify how a certain business transaction (such as a credit memo) is to be posted.

Click For posting areas 1 and 2: 1. Enter the posting type (posting or clearing G/L accounts or sub ledger accounts, reversing clearing). 2. Enter the accounts (that is, the account symbols) and posting keys for both the debit and credit sides of the posting record. Depending on the type of posting (clearing/posting), it may be necessary to leave the fields on either the debit or credit side blank. For example, with posting type 8 (credit clearing for sub ledger accounts), the system uses the note to payee information to try to identify and clear an appropriate open item. In this case, there is no need to specify the account and posting key beforehand since they will be determined automatically during the open item search. 3. Specify the document type. 4. If required, make entries in the optional fields for compression, special G/L indicators, and posting keys for payment on account.

6. Create transaction types In this activity you create the names and descriptions of the various transaction types you require. House banks that use identical lists of business transaction codes (external transactions) can be assigned to the same transaction type later. Create the names and descriptions of the various transaction types you require.

7. Assign external transaction codes to posting rules In this activity you assign (external) business transaction codes to an (internal) posting rule. This means that the same posting specifications can be used for different business transaction codes. 1. For each transaction type, assign a posting rule to each external transaction key. 2. In the "+/- sign" field, enter "+" or "-" to indicate whether payments are incoming or outgoing. 3. If necessary, define an interpretation algorithm if open items are to be cleared automatically as a result of the posting.
