Introduction

"Remittance" is a community module which adds remittance support to the existing "Advanced Payables and Receivables Management" (APRM) functionality.

A remittance is a group of "payments" (in/out) or "orders/invoices" which can be remitted to the bank for its payment. The bank will then manage either the collection of the money from the customers or the payment to the vendors/suppliers.

This module supports several remittance types:

This module also provides the ability to print a remittance as well as the infrastructure to define a "remittance" file generation logic.

Workflow overview

The diagram below shows a common remittance scenario:
Remesas.png

It is important to highlight that the same remittance can include at the same time:

but single payment remittances can only include either

It is important to have into account that:

Terminology

Configuration

Please refer to the Configuration Manual for guidance on how to installa and configure remittance feature.

Business scenario/s

F&B is an enterprise making business with several Business Partners: Vendors, Suppliers, Customers, etc.

Every Business Partner can have a "by default" Payment Method such as:

and a "by default" Payment Terms such as:

Sales Staff issues sales orders and then sales invoices and Purchase Staff registers purchase orders and then purchase invoices, as required.

Accounting Staff registers payments in/out as well in the system if any and creates, process, print and post Remittances which could include any of the transactions described above, regardless the payment method as well as the payment terms.

Above means that a Remittance might include a mix of sales & purchase transactions & payments in/out for several payment methods and payment terms.

Purchase Order/Invoices & Payment Out

(Prepayment) Remittance

Accounting Staff must be able to remit purchase orders in case a prepayment is required for the Goods to be sent to F&B company.

For getting the above done:

for the system only to show purchase order transactions.

End-user could also select any purchase order, regardless its payment method by selecting the flag "Show payments for alternative payment methods"

End-user could also select any purchase order, regardless its currency by selecting the flag “Show payments for alternative currencies”.
This is allowed only if the remittance payment method related to the remittance type and financial account being used allows making payments in other currency than financial account currency.

Once the corresponding purchase orders have been selected, end-user must press "Process" button. After that the system will generate as many lines as transactions selected in the "Lines" tab.

Back in the "Remittance" window, the end-user can press the header button "Process", by doing that it is possible:

In this case, it does make sense to group by business partner in order to save payment fees/remittances fees or group by business partner and due date.
Openbravo will create as many payments as applicable taking into account "grouping" criteria, in other words:

Finally, the remittance must be posted. Posting will be sucessfull only in case vendor does have a "prepayment" account setup in the business partner window, vendor accounting tab.

Posting looks like:

(40700) Vendor prepayment account DEBIT
(40100) Remittance Type - Sent Account CREDIT

Later on and once the bank has made the payments on its due date, the remittance lines must be "Settled" in the "Settle / Protest Remittances" window, by:

Back in the remittance window, Openbravo shows for a given remittance, all the lines settled, in the "Settled" tab.
The very last step is to post those "Settled" lines.

Posting looks like:

(40100) Remittance Type - Sent Account DEBIT
(57200) Remittance type - Settlement Account CREDIT

(Payment) Remittance

Accounting staff must be able to remit purchase invoices for the bank to manage the payments on its due date.

For getting the above done:

Please note that it is possible to mix purchase invoices and orders in a remittance together with existing payments by selecting those payments through the process button "Select Payments".

End-user can select any purchase invoice, regardless its payment method by selecting the flag "Show payments for alternative payment methods"

End-user can select any purchase invoice, regardless its currency by selecting the flag “Show payments for alternative currencies”.
This is allowed only if the remittance payment method related to the remittance type and financial account being used allows making payments in other currency than financial account currency.

PaymentOut Remittance2.png

Once the corresponding purchase invoices have been selected, end-user must press the "Process" button.

After that Openbravo generates as many remittance lines as transactions selected, do not referred to any payment if remittance just includes orders and/or invoices, otherwise payment number is shown in "Payment" field.

PaymentOut Remittance3.png

Back to the "Remittance" window, end-user can press the header button "Process". Below list of actions can be taken:

PaymentOut Remittance4.png

Finally, the remittance can be "Post"

Posting looks like:

(40000) Vendor liabilities DEBIT
(40100) Remittance type - Sent Account CREDIT

In the case of a remittance including USD transactions (orders, invoices and or payments) the conversion rate (USD to EUR) to be used while posting the remittance to a General Ledger in EUR is:

(Payment) Remittance Print

It is possible to print a remittance by using the "Print" menu button.
Printed remittance can be sent to the bank for the bank to pay the vendors on purchase invoice due date, as shown in the image below:

PaymentOutRemittance Print.png

(Payment) Settle / Protest Remittance

Accounting Staff is able to later on either Settle or Protest "Remittance" lines by navigating to the "Settle / Protest Remittances" window.
Those payments which were paid on its due date must be settled and those payments which were not paid because of any reason, must be protested.

For doing that and once in the "Settle / Protest Remittances" window, the end-user needs to follow below steps:

Dated on July 30th 2015, all remittance lines but the one related to Vendor USA 2 can be settled.

End-user can select those lines one by one and enter 30-07-2015 as accounting date and press the button "Settle" each time.
Above lines will then be removed from the window one by one.

Settle Protest 01.png

Remittance line with due date July 20th 2015 was not paid, therefore must be protested:

End-user can select it, enter 30-07-2015 as accounting date and press the button "Protest" this time.
That line will then be removed from the window.

Settle Protest 02.png

Finally, it is possible to see the status of each payment belonging to a Remittance in the Remittance window.

In this case there will be 3 payments listed in the "Settled" tab of the Remittance window

Settled tab.png

and 1 payment listed in the "Protested" tab of the Remittance window.

Protested tab.png

End-user needs to post each of the ones settled, to get that the amount is booked to the Remittance Settlement Account.

Settlement posting of the remittance line related to Vendor USA for instance looks like:

1000.00 (XXXXX) Remittance type - Sent Account DEBIT
1000.00 (XXXXX) Remittance type - Settle Account CREDIT

950.00 (40100) Proveedores efectos comerciales DEBIT
800.00 (66800) Diferencias negativas de cambio DEBIT
1750.00 (57200) Bancos e instituciones de credito - CREDIT

The conversion rate used at the time of posting Vendor USA invoice was 0.95 USD/EUR. That conversion rate was manually entered in the "Exchange Rates" tab of the invoice window. A balance of 950.00 € was accounted as Accounts Payable.

The conversion rate used at the time of posting the remit of that invoice was as well 0.95, therefore a balance of 950.00 € was accounted also at that time.

The conversion rate used at the time of posting the settlement of that invoice/payment was July USD to EUR conversion rate, that is 1.75, therefore the amount booked at bank account turns into 1750.00.

Bank revaluation loss is also created as accounting entry to reflect the conversion rate change.

Settlement posting of the remittance line related to Vendor USA 2 (in USD currency) looks like:

Protest posting looks like:

5000.00 (XXXXX) Remittance type - Sent Account DEBIT
5000.00 (XXXXX) Vendor Liabilites CREDIT

6800.00 (40100) Proveedores efectos comerciasles DEBIT
6800.00 (40000) Proveedores CREDIT

The conversion rate used at the time of posting Vendor USA 2 invoice was 1.36 USD/EUR. That conversion rate is the one defined at system level at the time of invoice accounting (May 2015). A balance of 6800.00 € was accounted as Accounts Payable.

The conversion rate used at the time of posting the remit of that invoice was as well 1.36, therefore a balance of 6800.00 € was accounted also at that time.

The conversion rate used at the time of posting the protest (July) is the one used at the time of posting the invoice and the remittance, therefore a balance of 6800.00 is once again booked back as Accounts Payable in the credit.

(Payment) Remittance Redraw

Later on, by mid August, unpaid Vendor USA 2 invoice can be redraw to be paid ending August.

End-user could create a new "payment" remittance in order to remit once again the unpaid vendor invoice to the bank; this time the option "Select Payments" must be chosen instead of "Select Orders/Invoices", as shown in the screen below:

Select Payments 01.png

All payment outs having an "Awaiting Execution" status are shown.

PaymentOut Remittance Redraw.png

End-user can select Vendor USA 2 one and then process and post the remittance.

The payment out which had an "Awaiting Execution" status, will then change to a "Remitted" status.

once paid, end-user needs to navigate to "Settle / Protest Remittance" window and get that one remaining settled, payment status will the change to "Withdrawn not Cleared".

Finally, end-user needs to navigate to the Remittance window in order to post the settled remittance line.

    1. this option must be selected in the case end-user needs to remit the payment once more.
    2. In case of existing an open remittance of the same type, that payment will be included there, otherwise a new remittance will be created.

Single Payment Out Remittance

Accounting staff must be able to remit several purchase invoices or orders for the bank to manage the payments on its due date, by creating a single payment out.

For getting the above done:

End-user could also select any purchase invoice/order, regardless its payment method by selecting the flag "Show payments for alternative payment methods".

Once the corresponding purchase invoices have been selected, end-user must press the "Process" button. After that the system will generate and show in "Lines" tab as many lines as transactions selected, all of them linked to the same payment out number.
