SEPA Bank Clearing

General

With the additional module for paperless payment transactions, you can collect invoices marked with SEPA in the terms of payment from the invoice recipient by base or company direct debit. The SEPA express direct debits (=COR1), which are especially common in Germany, are also supported for base direct debits.

You will receive a SEPA file which you can transfer electronically to your bank with many banking programs.

You can access the SEPA module via the quick start bar under "Accessories".

SEPA functions

Bank account

The bank details list all banks that you have defined in the company master data. If you have several accounts with the same bank, the account numbers are shown in brackets for information purposes.

Company Direct Debit, Basic Direct Debit or COR1 procedure

In the next selection box you determine whether the SEPA file should be created for which type. The open items are retrieved and displayed accordingly.

By default, all open items for which no information is missing are selected for payment.

In the lower status bar you see the respective sum of the SEPA action.

Create SEPA file

When a payment amount is displayed in the status line, press the"Create SEPA" button. The output of the XML file depends on the settings you have made in the"Settings" module under"Accessories". For checking purposes, you can check and, if necessary, change the output file name via the"SEPA Settings" button before the transfer.

To participate in the direct debit procedure, you as a company must have a creditor identification number (unique identifier for direct debits from a creditor). You can request these from the Deutsche Bundesbank.

In the case of the mandate prefix or mandate reference,"EULANDA-" is placed before the actual number as standard. However, this can be adapted to your wishes.

A remote mandate number should only be assigned once, since the business area identifier of the creditor ID cannot be used as a distinguishing feature.

The output file can then be transferred to your bank using a banking program such as Sfirm® from the savings banks, Proficash® from the Volksbanken, Starmoney® from Commerzbank or the neutral WinData®. Some banks also have the option of having the transfer carried out via the web browser.

All standard programs are multibank capable today, so that you can manage accounts from different banks with the online banking software. EULANDA® allows the pre-selection to the desired bank, so that the transactions can be controlled very easily by them.

As a rule, banks post the complete SEPA transaction as one booking, which is also cheaper than individual bookings. This means that only this one complete posting appears on the bank statement. In order to be able to determine which individual payments are hidden behind them, it is advisable to keep the accompanying sheet to the account statements.

Consignment note

Consignment note

On the accompanying note you will find at the top the mandate with which the move-in was executed. Below this is the collection date, which indicates when the money appears in your account. The type also describes whether it is a first debit memo or a repeated debit memo.

In the table you will find the invoice number, the invoice date as well as the company and the payment amount.

You can print the accompanying sheet using the printer icon on the toolbar and also export it to other formats.

You can also print out the accompanying slips for the last SEPA issues on the "Backup" tab.

Backup feature

The last SEPA transfers are stored in a backup memory for you. For each backup, you can print out an accompanying sheet or create a SEPA copy. It is also possible to reverse the payments made in the open items of EULANDA®. This may only be done if the SEPA file has not been processed by the bank.
