BACS Payment method configuration

Hi Folks,

I am looking for configuration for BACS (Bankers' Automated Clearing Services) payment data download from SAP ECC 6.0. This payment method is specific to United Kingdom. Please share the BACS configuration or advise me the steps to be performed to download payment data from ECC 6.0.

    you will need to do the usual bit for

    - payment method in country

    - payment method in company

    I suggest you copy the settings from the default method for bank transfers.

    Then you need to set country specifics for GB from the IMG:

    Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable

    --> Business Transactions

    --> Outgoing Payments

    --> Automatic Outgoing Payments

    --> Payment Media

    --> Country Specific Settings for Payment Media

    --> Define User Number at Bank:

    This number is used in the UK in order to prevent unauthorized transmissions and transactions. I cannot write down all the possible

    uses, but there is a SAP-online documentation available, also check the documentation of report RFFOGB_T, please. In any case

    you will need to define this number.

    --> Define Bank transaction code for United Kingdom

    We use code = 98 for BACS, but I suggest you confirm with the bank you want to do this business with.

    Hope this helps.

    Kind regards,

      Could you please let me know the BACS payment list of output fields?

      Vendor Bank Account Number

      099 (I guess this is the partner bank transaction code)

      Paying Comapny Code Sort Code

      Paying Comapny Code Bank Account Number

      Payment Amount

      Paying Company Code Name
