In PeopleSoft, you can create and maintain the following types of bank accounts, depending on your organizational needs:

Click to jump to parent topicCommon Elements Used in This Chapter

Account # (account number)

Displays the account number of the bank, as defined by bank ID calculations on the Bank ID Qualifiers page. For banks in some countries with certain bank qualifier IDs, you must also enter a check digit.

Acct Type (account type) and Bank Account Type

Enter a value that identifies the type of account, such as Check Acct (checking account) or SB Acct (stocks and bonds account).

Company ID or Company Identification Number or Remitter ID

Enter a company ID, which is specified by certain European banks (for example, banks in France and Italy) to identify the issuer of an electronic file. Banks may issue one remitter ID per payment method for use with these four payment methods: Direct Debit (DD), Wire Transfer (WIR), Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT), or Automated Clearing House (ACH). During Pay Cycle Manager processing, the system accesses this data (if available) from a table and submits it with the specified payment method information.

If you are specifying EFT options for a French bank account, you complete this field only if you are also using the ETEBAC EFT layout. Company ID is then used to populate Numero d'emetteur. If specifying options for an Italian bank account, complete this field only if you are using the ITAPYMT EFT layout.

Note. The Numero d'Emetteur (or remitter ID) is different from the Numéro National d'émetteur (NNE). Remitter IDs are issued by any central European bank. NNEs are issued only by the Banque de France and are mandatory information when processing direct debits using a ETBDD EFT layout. Remitter ID is also optional information when processing drafts using ETBDR EFT layout.

See Defining Account Information.

See Defining Collection Methods.

DFI Qualifier (depository financial institution qualifier) and DFI ID (depository financial institution ID)

Select the DFI qualifier and enter the associated DFI ID to identify the bank using its DFI ID. If you use intermediary routings, this bank represents the final bank into which funds are transferred. The DFI qualifier indicates the format—the number of characters and numerics—that is used in the bank's DFI ID. Each type has a specific number of digits that you can enter:

Transit Number: Enter exactly nine numerics, plus check digit calculation.

Swift ID: Enter 8 or 11 characters; positions 5 and 6 must be a valid two-character country code.

CHIPS ID: Enter three or four numerics for a CHIPS ID (CHIPS Participant ID).

CHIPS UID (CHIPS universal identification number): Enter six numerics for a CHIPS UID.

Canadian Bank Branch/Institute: No validation.

Mutually Defined: No validation.

EFT Layout (electronic funds transfer layout)

Select one of the predefined EFT formats used in various countries and by many clearing institutions. We also provide you with the tools to create additional EFT layout formats when needed.

Last File Number

Displays the last EFT file number.

Click to jump to top of pageClick to jump to parent topicBank Account ChartField Inheritance for Education and Government

In education and government organizations, you can associate bank accounts with a single fund (non-pooled) or group of funds (pooled). Pooled accounts may contain funding from many different grants or endowments, and this pooled fund is represented as a fully configurable ChartField:

To correctly process transactional ChartFields for pooled bank accounts, use the Bank Account ChartField Inheritance feature. This feature provides a balancing methodology at the ChartField level rather than at the business unit level, which in turn facilitates the interunit and intraunit accounting entry functionality. To enable ChartField inheritance, select one of four inheritance options for each fully configurable ChartField (plus Department and Project ChartFields) on the External Accounts - ChartField Options page. Automatic processes cross-validate whether the specific ChartField supports the inheritance option; the cross-validation is dependent on the PeopleSoft applications and options selected on the External Accounts page.

The following tables illustrate the valid inheritance option combinations:

Click to jump to top of pageClick to jump to parent topicBank Account Payment Methods

If you use Cash Management and Payables in your organization's banking processes, you can configure banking accounts to automatically process certain Cash Management settlements through either the Cash Management Payment Dispatch or Payables Pay Cycle Manager (PCM) functionality.

To enable this settlement integration, there are now two payment sources predefined in PCM:

The following is a listing of supported and unsupported settlement options for Cash Management settlements:

Note. All Cash Management settlements processed through PCM must use the same default currency of the account. For example, if a bank account has a default currency of USD, and you create a settlement from this account with a currency of JPY, PCM cannot process the settlement.

Click to jump to top of pageClick to jump to parent topicInternational Bank Account Number (IBAN) Functionality

International Bank Account Number (IBAN) provides an international standard account identifier in order to facilitate automated processing of cross-border transactions. IBAN standards are established by the European Committee for Banking Standards (ECBS) and the International Standards Organization (ISO).

PeopleSoft provides a function that validates an IBAN for new account information and stores the IBAN and its check digit in a record. Clicking the View IBAN button on either the Beneficiary Bank page or External Accounts page, as well as various other PeopleSoft Financials application pages, starts a function that validates the IBAN check digit entry, using processes and functions that conform to ISO 13616, 3166, and 7064. If the check digit is successfully validated, the system concatenates the two-digit country code, IBAN check digit and the existing Basic Bank Account Number (BBAN) to create the IBAN:

Calculation Page

Related Record

External Accounts

BANK_ACCT_DEFN

Settlement Instructions

STL_INSTRUCTION

EFT Request Entry

TR_WR_DETAIL

EFT Template

TR_WR_TEMPLATE

For electronic formats, the IBAN includes the two-letter country code, two-numeral check digit, and existing BBAN. For paper formats, the IBAN is the same as the electronic format, and also includes the tag IBAN followed by a space, with the number separated into groups of four characters. The last group may vary in length, up to four characters.

Note. Besides the IBAN check digit functionality, users have the option of entering the IBAN manually. Which method is used is determined on a country-by-country basis on the IBAN Formats page.

Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) Requires IBAN and Bank Identifier Code (BIC)

The European Commission (EC), and the European Central Bank (ECB) working with the Eurosystem, with the support of the European Payments Council (EPC), which brings together the European payments industry, created the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA). SEPA enables citizens, companies and other economic actors to make and receive payments in Euros between and within national boundaries in Europe with the same basic conditions, rights and obligations, regardless of their location.

SEPA requires the use of BIC and IBAN codes to uniquely identify the creditor's and debtor's banks and bank accounts in all Euro cross-border payments. It is imperative that the IBAN and BIC codes are correct to avoid repair fees that the bank charges due to processing errors. In addition, the validation of the IBAN and BIC codes avoids delays in processing payments and collections due to the time-consuming correction of these errors. The system only validates BIC codes when payments are being settled or settled and dispatched as long as the currency is EUR and the layout is a predefined SEPA credit transfer layout.

Value dating transactions is a common practice in Western European countries, similar to the banking practice of float in the United.States. The value date of a transaction is the date on which funds are available (either as a deposit or a settlement). Banks negotiate this date to be a specified number of days before or after the business date of a transaction. For payments or settlements, the value date is calculated as a number of days before the business date, which means that the check must clear the bank prior to settling with the individual beneficiary. For deposits, the value date is calculated as a specified number of days beyond the business date.

You specify a value date (expressed as a positive or negative number) for a selected payment method. This functionality is available to you depending on how you configure Treasury Management. If you do not enable the value date functionality for a business unit, automatic processes enable the accounting date (or business date) to appear by default in the Value Date field. Using the Value Date option in PeopleSoft is mainly a setup step. After you specify value date parameters for a specific bank account on the External Accounts - Payment Methods page, automatic processes populate the calculated value date in the system and on applicable PeopleSoft reports.

Override

Select this check box to sort checks with large amounts during payment creation. Enter an amount in the Amount field to define the check amount that triggers an override. The payment handling code dictates the print order for these special checks. For example, if you specify an override limit of 50,000 USD with a handling code of HD, the system prints checks equal to or more than 50,000 USD in the sort sequence specified by the payment handling code.

You define handling codes on the Payment Handling Codes page. When adding new codes, leave gaps between numbers in the sort sequence so that you can easily add more codes as necessary. This table lists some handling codes that you may want to implement:

PayCycle Amount Limits

This functionality is integrated with the Payables bank replacement functionality.

The system is not enabled for amount splitting. If a voucher amount exceeds the maximum amount per pay cycle or the maximum amount per payment, the entire voucher amount is derived from another account. For example, you establish that Bank Account 001 has a 50,000 USD maximum and Bank Account 002 has a 25,000 USD maximum. A 10-voucher group to be paid totals 51,000 USD. The first nine vouchers total 47,000 USD and are paid from Bank Account 001. The number 10 voucher totaling 4,000 USD is paid from Bank Account 002.

Note. You must first define valid currency codes for the account before you can define Paycycle Currency Code and Payment Currency Code values.

Maximum Amount Per Paycycle

Enter the maximum amount that may be paid from a bank account per pay cycle run, and specify a pay cycle currency code. If the pay cycle amount exceeds the maximum limit set here, the system switches to the specified replacement bank accounts to pay the remainder.

For example, the total pay cycle is 2,000,000 USD. You specify that:

  1. The system derives funds from Bank Account 01, to a maximum of 1,250,000 USD.

  2. The system then derives funds up to a maximum of 500,000 USD from Bank Account 02.

  3. The system then derives funds up to a maximum of 300,000 USD from Bank Account 03.

Maximum Amount Per Payment

Enter the maximum amount that may be paid for an individual amount out of a bank account. If the limit is exceeded, the payment program selects another bank.

Receipt Information

Only Receivables uses the information in the Receipt Information group box.

Deposit Type

Select the type of deposits that this account receives, and also indicate the associated Deposit Unit. This information tells you the nature of the deposit and varies according to record keeping practices. Deposit types might categorize regions in which you do business or might separate deposits by source of income. You must establish deposit types on the Deposit Type page before you can select one in this field.

Payment Predictor

Select to enable the Payment Predictor process (AR_PREDICT) to process the deposits and payments that this account receives. If you select Payment Predictor for a bank account, the system sets the Payment Predictor process as the default method to apply all payments received from that bank account. You can disable the Payment Predictor process for individual payments during deposit and payment entry.

Discount Evaluation Options

Payables uses the Discount Evaluation Rate feature. Processes (during pay cycle selection) on a federal invoice amount calculate money saved by taking an "early pay" vendor discount, versus money earned by interest accrued on the invoice amount to the full due date. You can specify the interest rate per account of a single bank. To enable interest accrual calculation, specify the interest rate and related information.

Interest Rate

Enter a percentage as a decimal.

Days in Year

Displays the number of days that the system uses to compute the annual effective discount rate specified by the vendor. The default value is 360.

Access the External Accounts - Collection Methods page (Banking, Bank Accounts, External Accounts, Collection Methods).

Payment Information

Payment Method

Select the form of receipts reserved for a particular account. Options are:

  • Cash

  • Check

  • Credit Card

  • Direct Debit

  • Draft

  • Electronic Fund Transfer

  • Giro - EFT

  • Giro - Manual

If you select Direct Debit as the payment method, a Prenote Required check box appears. If you select this check box , the Create Direct Debit process in PeopleSoft Receivables creates a prenote that is sent to a customer's bank to confirm that the customer's account information is correct. The bank either confirms that the information is correct, or the prenote is automatically confirmed by the system after a specified number of days has elapsed.

If you select the Direct Debit payment method, the Electronic Layouts grid appears, where you can select an EFT (electronic file transmission) Layout to use for the direct debit transactions. If you select the Prenote Required check box and select an EFT Layout code, the system verifies that the EFT Layout is valid for use with direct debits with prenotes.

If you select the Draft payment method, and the bank account is assigned to a business unit that uses the document sequencing feature, you must set up document sequencing for draft processing. Click the Document Type link to specify the document types for each draft event.

Direct Debit Lead Time Days

Enter the days needed to process a direct debit payment. This field is used by PeopleSoft eBill Payments and PeopleSoft Receivables to determine the payment date. Payment Date is the day of the funds transfer. Payment Date will be usually defaulted to item due date, however, if the due date subtracted from the direct debit lead time days is less than the current date, then the item should have already been selected for processing. In this case, the payment date will be the current date plus the direct debit lead time days.

See Understanding the Set Up and Processing of Direct Debits with Prenotes.

Collection Options

The fields that are available vary based on the payment method that you select on this page.

Currency, Min Remit Amt (minimum remittance amount), and Draft Risk Days

If you select Draft as the payment method, complete these fields. The system populates the Currency field with the default currency for the bank account. The system uses this currency for the credit limit amount for discounted drafts and for the minimum remittance amount. You can change the currency, if necessary.

The Min Remit Amt field displays the minimum that the bank permits you to remit for discounted drafts. This value appears on the Draft Remittance worksheet.

The Draft Risk Days field displays the number of days after the draft due date that the bank waits to notify you that a customer failed to pay for a draft. The system uses this information to trigger due-date processing for a discounted draft. For example, if a draft is due on January 6, and the number of risk days is 3, the Receivable Update process generates the accounting entries for due-date processing on January 9.

Notice

Enter a notice period for direct debits. In various countries, the notice period is sometimes mandated by law. It may be contractually established by you with your customer, or it may be a courtesy that you extend as a reminder that you will be transferring funds from your customer's bank account in a specified number of days.

Clearing Method

Select a clearing method for this particular account, if you are using cash-control accounting. The timing of the cash-control entry (debiting cash and crediting the cash clearing or control account) depends on your selection. Options are:

Bank Recon (bank reconciliation): You recognize the cash as received (that is, cash is debited) when the payment is reconciled on the bank statement. European countries frequently use this method.

Due Date: You recognize (debit) cash as received when payment is made. Most companies in the U.S. use the cash-control method.

None: You have not implemented cash-control accounting or you want cash to update when you remit the direct debit to the bank.

Discounted Draft Credit Limit

These fields are available only if you selected the Draft payment method.

Credit Limit

Enter the maximum amount that you have available with the bank account for discounted drafts. When you remit a draft, you see whether the customer has exceeded the credit limit on the Available Credit page.

Date

Displays the date on which the bank account agreed to the credit limit.

Review

Displays the date on which the bank plans to review the credit limit.

Value Date

A value date is a virtual date for a banking operation, generally not the real date for the operation. The practice of value date consists of recording a banking operation:

Value Date

Select to enable value dating for the bank account.

Value Date Days

Enter a value date (expressed as a positive or negative number) for the selected payment method.

Payment Cutoff Time

Enter the cutoff time, using AM or PM, or use the timestamp button to enter the current system time. Payments arriving by this time are processed by the bank that day. Payments arriving afterwards are processed on the next business day.

Holiday Processing Options

Holiday Options

Select the rules for the bank that the system uses to calculate the estimated settlement date for drafts and direct debits. Treasury Management uses this date for cash forecasting. It defines how to change the date when it falls on a bank holiday. You define holidays on the Business Calendar page, and then you assign a calendar to a bank account on the External Accounts - Account Information page. Options are:

Not Applicable: Does not change the estimated settlement date.

Pay After Holiday: Changes the estimated settlement date to a day after the holiday.

Pay Before Holiday: Changes the estimated settlement date to a day before the holiday.

Days

Enter the number of days that you want to move the date to accommodate the holiday.

Electronic Layouts

This grid is available only if the payment method is Direct Debit or Draft. If draft is the specified payment method, then you can specify only one layout.

Default Flag

Select to make this layout the default layout for the specified payment method.

EFT Layout Code (electronic file transfer layout)

Select an EFT file format.

Note. If you selected Direct Debit and the Required Prenote check box as the payment method, the system verifies that the EFT file format that you select here is valid for direct debit transactions with prenotes.

See Understanding the Set Up and Processing of Direct Debits with Prenotes.

Last File Number

Displays a sequence number used to uniquely identify payment files generated by the Receivables Collection Methods process. The system uses the last file number as part of the file name of the newly created payment file. It also automatically increases the last number by one to create the next file with a different file name. This prevents overwriting any other files.
