Enter a payment in the bank journal

After processing, a generated payment file is automatically entered in the suspense account Betalingen onderweg. You enter the payment in the bank journal manually in the ledger account Betalingen onderweg, which balances the entry.

You complete the payment order directly when entering or loading the bank statement. You link the batch number to the payment order (this can only be done if the Batch number field is in the entry layout). Finally you link the payment order to the line in which it is written off in the bank statement and the payment order is given the Completed status.


If you want to enter the Batch number in the entry layout then change the entry layout. You can only select a batch for a payment order with the Processed status.
