SAP SEPA Direct Debit - Mandate creation -

Hi all,

We are trying to implement SEPA - DD.

I am having some issues creating a SEPA MAndate using tcode fsepa_m1. I was able to enter IBAN & Swift code and all other data relating to the customer was automatically copied by the system.

I ensured that all data was entered correctly, and clicked on Check mandate button, and system says 'The data contains no errors'.

However when I try to save the mandate, system gives the below message.

Creditor identifier is a required entry field

Message no. SEPA174

I am not sure where this value needs to be maintained.

Can anyone please advise how to overcome this problem.

Also if anyone can please provide any useful information for configuring SEPA Direct Debit

I tried to go through the below sap help link, but this doesn't really help fully in the configuration of the SEPA

[http://help.sap.com/erp2005_ehp_04/helpdata/EN/8e/1da0649c054ac0a46b893b7b731ab8/frameset.htm]

Thanks in advance.

Krishna

    Hi,

    Do not know whether you got the answer already.

    The solution is, in the Mandate, you have to give the vendor name or number in the Recipient Tab - vendor field.

    Hello Krishna,

    We are having same requirement to implement SEPA for direct debits (XML format) with mandate management.

    Can you please advice me on what steps you followed for the same & how to start. It would be really great, if you could share some documentation.

    Thanks in advance!

      HiKrishna,

      I'm having the same message error that you had mentoned on your first post:

      Creditor identifier is a required entry field

      Message no. SEPA174

      I don't really see this field, so I can't save the mandate information.

      Where did you maintained the creditor field so you could pass the error?

      Thanks in advance!

      Hi Niti,

      I maintained value in the creditor field, I think its the bank account number of the co. code to which the payment will be received. I am not really sure about this, this is my guess.

      After maintaining some dummy value in the creditor field, I did not get any error during my testing.

      Thanks

    In SEPA countries, the creditor identifier is not a dummy value. Please ask your client what is their creditor identifier number and maintain the same in the field creditor identifier. If you maintain a dummy value, it will work for testing purposes in stand alone testing systems. But the transactions at the bank will be denied while sending the file to bank from production system.

    I hope the above is clear. Please let me know if not so.

    Regards,

    Hello

    I hope this is fixed already. But for new comers. Creditor id is given by bank to organization and it represents their contract with the banks. Normally companies use one creditor id with all banks. Creditor id is mandatory field for mandate creation as well as during SDD XML creation.

    One need to configure creditor if in SPRO settings with the below mentioned path:

    Financial Accounting ----- Contract account receivable and payable ------- Business Transaction------Payments-------Incoming and outgoing payment creation---------Define specification for paying company code

    Here define Specification for SEPA payments
