76 Set Up A/R Draft Processing

This chapter contains these topics:

76.1 Setting Up AAIs for A/R Drafts

Navigation

From Accounts Receivable (G03), enter 29

From Accounts Receivable Setup (G0341), choose AAIs for A/R Drafts

AAIs define rules for programs that automatically generate journal entries. You should set up draft AAIs for each company for which you use a different account number. That is, you do not need to set up an AAI for each company that uses the same account. If the system cannot find an AAI for a specific company, it uses the AAI from company 00000.

76.1.1 AAIs for Drafts Receivable (RD1x)

When you accept a draft, you debit a drafts receivable account and credit the original accounts receivable account. RD1x defines the drafts receivable account to automatically debit when you enter draft receipts. When drafts are remitted, this account is credited. You can override this account when you enter drafts.

76.1.2 AAIs for Drafts Remitted for Cash (RD2x)

When you remit drafts to your bank on the draft due date, you debit a drafts remitted account and credit the drafts receivable account (which RD1x defines). RD2x defines the drafts remitted account to debit when you remit drafts. When cash is recognized, this account is credited. You can override this account using processing options during draft remittance.

76.1.3 AAIs for Drafts Remitted for Discount (RD3x)

When you request payment on your draft before the due date, you debit a drafts remitted for discount account and credit the drafts receivable account (which RD1x defines). RD3x defines the drafts remitted for discount account to automatically debit when you remit drafts. When cash is recognized, this account is credited. You can override this account using processing options during draft remittance.

After the bank collects the draft, the system debits a cash account and credits either the RD2x or RD3x account, depending on which you used.

To set up AAIs for A/R drafts

On Single AAI Revisions or Multiple AAI Revision

  1. Complete the following fields:

    • Item Number

    • Company

    • Business Unit

    • Object Account

    • Subsidiary (optional)

  2. Press Enter.

76.2 Setting Up User Defined Codes for A/R Drafts

Your company may add codes for payment instruments. These codes are user defined so that you can customize them to suit your business needs.

76.2.1 Payment Instrument Codes

Payment instrument codes (00/PY) specify how your customers make payments. Examples are:

Code Description
D Draft by Invoice

When you create an invoice and expect your customer to pay by draft, you use this code to indicate that your customer will pay the invoice by draft.

F Draft by Statement

When you create an invoice and expect your customer to pay by draft, you use this code to indicate that your customer will pay invoices grouped on a statement by draft.

0 Magnetic Draft

When you enter a pre-authorized draft, the system assigns this code. This is used during RiBa draft remittance only.

1 Supplier Draft with Account Number

When you originate a draft and your customer accepts the draft and returns it to you, you enter that information on Enter Our Drafts. The system assigns this code if you have customer bank account information.

2 Customer Draft with Account Number

When you send your customer an invoice and they return it as a draft, you accept the draft on Enter Their Drafts. The system assigns this code if you have customer bank account information.

3 Supplier Draft without Account Number

When you originate a draft and your customer accepts the draft and returns it to you, you enter that information on Enter Our Drafts. The system assigns this code if you do not have customer bank account information.

4 Customer Draft without Account Number

When you send your customer an invoice and they return it as a draft, you accept the draft on Enter Their Drafts. The system assigns this code if you do not have customer bank account information.


76.2.2 Pay Status Codes

The system enters one of the following payment status codes (00/PS) on an invoice, statement, or draft, based on where it is in the draft process:

Code Description
A Approved for Payment

When you create an invoice and expect your customer to pay by draft, the system designates this pay status on the invoice.

P Invoice Paid in Full

When your customer returns the invoice with a draft attachment and you enter that information, the system designates this pay status on the invoice.

D Draft Accepted

When your customer returns the invoice with a draft attachment and you enter that information, the system designates this pay status on the draft.

G Draft Guaranteed

When you submit the draft to the bank and you update the draft with the remitted information, the system designates this pay status on the draft.


To set up user defined codes for A/R drafts

On the appropriate user defined codes form

  1. Complete the following fields:

    • Character Code

    • Description

    • Description-2 (optional)

  2. Press Enter.

76.3 Setting Up Drafts as the Default Payment Instrument

Navigation

From Accounts Receivable (G03), choose Customer & Invoice Entry

From Customer & Invoice Entry (G0311), choose Customer Master Information

You can set a default payment instrument to use for each customer. The system displays the default payment instrument when you enter invoices for that customer. This saves data entry time when entering invoices.

For drafts, this payment instrument indicates whether you plan to send drafts attached to the customer's invoices or statements. The draft payment instrument can be any of the following:

Occasionally, the customer might use another form of payment. You can use Speed Status Change to change the payment instrument on an invoice-by-invoice basis. You can also use this program to update the discount available, remark, pay status, and/or due date.

In order for your bank to collect the customer drafts you remit, you must have the following information about your customers' bank accounts:

The Bank Account Exception Report lists all bank account records that have either an illegal French RIB key or a transit number that does not have an associated type B record.

Two versions of this report are available:

Version Description
Italian When you run this version, the system searches for a bank account type B to verify the bank transit account number of your customer's bank type D accounts.
French When you run this version, the system searches for an illegal French RIB number in the bank transit number.

Regardless of which version you run, the system bypasses bank account numbers that do not have address numbers.

To correct bank account information that appears on this report, use Bank Account Cross-Reference or Address Book Revisions.

When a customer has an outstanding draft because of insufficient funds, you can send a notification letter. The text that prints on the letter must first be defined using NSF Notification Generic Text.

You create codes that indicate the severity of your warning (for example, LEVEL 1 for a first letter, LEVEL 2 for a second letter, and so on), then define the text for each code. When you run NSF Notification to create your notification letters, you enter a code in the processing options. The system prints a letter using the text associated with that code.
