When the bank reconciliation account is activated for the house bank account, the bank subaccount is derived by the account symbol.

Check the following customizing:

  1. SSCUI Set Up Payment Methods for Each Country/Region for Payment Transactions ID 101972

    Company Code: 1010
    G/L Account Type: Cash Account
    G/L Account Subtype: B (Bank Reconciliation Account)
    Account Group: FIN . (Liquid funds accounts)

    Bank reconciliation account should be non open item managed 

    For the Clearing Accounts:
    G/L Account type: Cash Account 
    G/L Account Subtype: Bank Sub Account 
    Reconciliation Accnt: Associated GL account

    Example TRANSF

    Assign bank sub account to the account symbol

  7. SSCUI Assign Account Symbol to Payment Methods ID 103557

  8. Manage Automatic Payment 

    8.1 Schedule Proposal -> View Log

    Current G/L account YCOA 11005000 is a reconciliation account.
    Account symbol TRANSF is assigned to payment method DE T.
    Clearing G/L account 11005020 is determined by account 11005000 and rule +++++++020.

    Logic for Payments Example 

    8.2.1. Payment Run identifies payment method and House Bank Account for payment 
    - Country "DE' + Payment method "T", House bank account DEAC1
    8.2.2. House Bank Account points to G/L Account - G/L Account 11005000 identified
    8.2.3. Country and Payment method finds Account Symbol
    - Country "DE" + Payment Method "T" identifies Account Symbol "TRANSF"
    8.2.4 Account Symbol uses masking of G/L Account
    -Account Symbol "TRANSF" is masking G/L account "11005000" to identify clearing account "11005020"
