Use this form to view and change the bank accounts that will be used to pay transactions that are included in the payment proposal. Typically, the bank account is based on the payment method that is associated with the transaction. However, if the bank account does not contain sufficient funds to pay the transactions, you can distribute the payments to a different bank account.

Use the Sorting field to select the sequence in which to redistribute payment lines by amount. Then, in the Available amount field, specify the maximum amount that each bank account can handle. This includes lines of credit, if you want to use them. In the Priority field, enter the search sequence for the bank accounts. Use a priority of 0 (zero) if a bank account must not be included in the distribution, possibly because it does not have sufficient funds available.

When you click OK, the methods of payment are reassigned to the payment lines according to the bank accounts that have the necessary funds available for vendor payments.

The following table provides descriptions for the controls in this form.

Field

Description

Sorting

Select the sequence in which to redistribute payment lines by amount.

Bank account

The identifier of the bank account.

Bank balance

The current balance for the bank account.

Main account

The main account that is assigned to the bank account.

Ledger balance

The balance of the ledger account, in the accounting currency.

Available amount

The amount that is available for distribution, in the accounting currency.

  • If the bank account contains a credit and the main account contains a debit amount, that balance is transferred to this field.

  • If the bank account contains insufficient funds or the main account shows a credit balance, the available amount is displayed as 0.00.

You can change the amount in this field based on the available liquidity of the legal entity. For example, you might do this if the bank account has an available line of credit.

Payment amount

The total amount of the payment proposals for this bank.

Priority

A number that determines the order in which transaction amounts to pay are distributed among the bank accounts. A priority of 0 indicates that the bank account is not included in the distribution. For example, you might use a priority of 0 if the amount to pay exceeds the bank account balance.
