3235433 - Change the suffix ID of generated SEPA bank file from 000 to any other suffix


You see a bank transfer file (SEPA) is generated, the ID that appears is the VAT number + 000. In some countries the suffix 000 should appear as XYZ(XYZ refers to any other suffix e.g. 001 or 002) for the file to be recognized in the bank

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Liquidity Management work center
  2. Go to the Outbound Files view
  3. Search and Select relevant File ID
  4. Click View All
  5. Go to Attachment tab
  6. Open the file and below is the tag where the suffix(ABC, where it refers to VAT number + suffix) appears.












This is a fallback mechanism wherein 000 is used as a suffix when there's a missing entry in my bank


In order to override this fallback value you have to maintain the desired suffix at below path.

  1. Liquidity Management Work Center
  2. My Banks, open/edit the relevant bank at tab Bank Accounts and select the used Bank Account Number
  3. At the subtab Account on filed "Customer ID at Bank" fill in the desired suffix.

Please consider that there are no checks/limitations on the possible values.
Once the change has been saved successfully a regeneration of the payment file should be sufficient to reflect this change into the new file.
