Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

Single European Payment Area (SEPA) is an initiative in European Union (EU) countries/regions to provide a common electronic banking system to transfer payments within EU countries/regions. The process of sending payments electronically to a vendor is called credit transfer. The electronic file format for SEPA credit transfer is based on XML ISO 20022. The European Payment Council (EPC) has specified a general XML format that you can use to generate the SEPA credit transfer payment file.

NoteNote

This topic has been updated to include information about features that were added or changed for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, AX 2012 R2 with the hotfix in KB2902097, and AX 2012 with the hotfix in KB2902097.

Depending on the version that you are using, you can generate electronic payment files for SEPA in the following formats:

  • In AX 2012 R3 or cumulative update 7 or later for AX 2012 R2: The SEPA credit transfer format supports the PAIN.001.001.03 version for Germany, Spain, Finland, France, and Italy. You can select a country or region to generate vendor payments for in the XML format.

  • In AX 2012 R3, AX 2012 R2 with the hotfix in KB2902097, and AX 2012 with the hotfix in KB2902097: You can generate electronic payment files for SEPA credit transfers in the PAIN.001.001.03 XML file format for Austria, and in the PAIN.001.003.03 XML file format for Germany.

You can create electronic payment files by using the Application Integration Framework (AIF) and the Extensible Stylesheet Language for Transformations (XSLT) for Austria, Belgium, Germany, Spain, Finland, France, Italy, or the Netherlands. Electronic payments are processed by using the electronic payment services in the AIF. A single comprehensive export payment XML schema is available to export a payment in the XML format. The transform files for selected formats such as SEPACreditTransfer or SEPADirectDebit are available. You must set up the outbound ports for the AIF and map the transform files for the SEPA payment format to create a SEPA credit transfer payment file. For more information, see Set up an outbound payment format.

The following table shows the prerequisites that must be in place before you start.
