    Configuration-wise, you will have to ℹ️ create and assign business transactions to posting rules, (ii) create account symbols, (iii) assign accounts to account symbols, (iv) create keys for posting rules and (v) define posting rules for both EBS and manual bank statement posting. Additionally, for EBS, you will have to (vi) create transaction types, (vii) assign external transaction types to posting rules and (viii) assign bank accounts to transaction types, for EBS.

    The difference in posting EBS is that you receive an electronic file from bank which consists of external transaction type and you post it in SAP using FF_5; whereas in manual bank statement (FF67), you need to enter business transaction for each line in the bank statement. The accounts get hit (in both cases) via the posting rules -> account symbols.

    Electronic bank statement to transfer bank statement data to SAP Cash and Liquidity Management electronically. You receive the bank statement by means of banking communication software (BCS), which dials into your credit institution and transfers the data.

    To carry out this data transfer, you need a transfer program (standardized format), such as MultiCash, that understands the BCS. MultiCash reads the required data from the banks (such as the bank statement) to an interim store in the system.

    Check Encashment :Displays the date the check was cashed by the payee.

    Please let me know if you need more information.

    Assign points if useful.
