1779492 - Exclude payables with payment method direct debit in the payment run and clear open items


You are applying payment method direct debit for payables. Since this is a non-self-initiated payment this payment method cannot be maintained in the supplier's master data. Now you want to make sure that such due payables are not picked up by the payables payment run and do not create payment proposals. At the same time you want to allocate those payments and clear open items.





Since direct debit for suppliers represents a non-self-initiated payment, this method cannot be maintained in the supplier's master data. Depending on the applied payment strategy open due payables will be picked up by the payment run also for suppliers without maintained payment method. In such cases payment proposals would be created also for payables where non-self-initiated payments should be applied.


Set a payment block in supplier master data in order to suppress the generation of payment proposals resulting from the payment run.

  1. Go to work center Supplier Base.
  2. Query for the relevant supplier(s).
  3. Via Edit choose the option Financial Data.
  4. Under tab Payment Data you have to possibility to set a payment block by stating a Payment Block Reason.

A payment allocation and clearing of open payables can be achieved once the relevant payments are recorded in a corresponding uploaded or manually created bank statement.
