Bank Details in the SD invoice

Good morning all,

Related to this topic I have 2 doubts or questions (we are not working with Fiory yet):

- First of all could be more a “business” question (bet practice); do usually big companies (SAP companies) include the bank details in the Invoice? advantages are clear (less administration duties), but may there could be some disadvantages (Fraud?).

-Second questions is related to the SAP solution for this? Could “bank details” be introduced in the Customer master data and printed in the invoice form? The idea would be bank details be transferred to the sales order, being able to modify it in the sales order or in the invoice, and printed in the invoice form.

Please let me know.

Thanks

Kind regards,

Daniel L.

    There is no fixed thumb rule to both your questions. It has to be looked into on case to case basis and clients' discretion. Yes, of course, the more details you provide in the invoice output, would eliminate the payment issue.

    Also, on your comment

     The idea would be bank details be transferred to the sales order, being able to modify it in the sales order or in the invoice, and printed in the invoice form. 

    it would be ideal if this detail is added to smartform of the invoice output rather in sale order

    SAP is used by the companies of different sizes. But all the companies I worked at included "Remit to" information on the invoices. Not sure what fraud could be committed by simply knowing company's account number... If someone could break into the bank's system they would find this information anyway.

    I'm a bit confused about the second question - what does customer master have to do with "bank details"? Bank relevant to the billing is the one that receives the payment, i.e. your company's bank. It's not the customer's bank. Don't believe anyone would care where the money came from, unless there is an odd local legal requirement in some country.
