Manage vendor bank account in company code level - Best practice

hi,

we have on our client several company codes, and we are thinking how to manage the vendor bank accounts in company codes level or in centeral level.

our problem with company codes level is that the vendor bank accounts define in a centeral level so technically with sap standard it is not possible. if anyone can tell me that this is possible i will be very happy to know.

in centeral level our problem is with the business process because of we do not have a person (functionalism ) that can be responsible for all the company codes, basically every company shoule be responsible for her vendors

please advice what is the best practice to manage vendor bank accounts in enviroment of several company code

regards,

meir

    Hi,

    You may create the Vendor Bank Details centrally for all company codes at FI01.

    All the bank accounts are created based on country and hence can be used across company codes.

    You can use them for any vendor that you are going to create for all the company codes.

      Hi,

      Which company code is creating Vendor when there are more than one company codes using the vendor.

      This is also in the similar way. Whichever company code creates the Vendor, will maintain the bank details too.

      Regarding the second part of your question, i am sure there is an option in FBZP, paying company codes where we can mention the rank of banks.

    Hi,

    Company code wise Vendor bank account can be maintained in Centrally is possible.

    In Bank details you can assign multiple bank account in vendor master in centrally but in Business partner field you can mention 2 alphanumeric number which will differentiate the bank accounts based on company code level.

    When you post the invoice in the vendor line item level you need to give the business partner key which you have given in the master data.

    Business partner key is free text field. You can mention any thing.

    I think this scenario will solve your problem.

      HI Venkat

      i know this and this not good because of we do not want that the accountant will be responsible from which bank account the vendor recieve his payment.

      and also partner bank type is 4 position and not 2 and also in this issue i do not get an unswer how several company code can manage the bank account in a centeral level, i wait to see if anyone could tell me how he solve this problem so every company code could be responsible to her accounts

      regards,
