Report Customer Draft/Definite Postdated Check Rejected by Bank before Collection

This instruction explains how you report a customer draft that has been returned from the bank without having been collected or discounted.

You can also use this instruction to report definite postdated checks (type 1) that have been rejected, since they are managed as payment class 4 documents in M3.


Bank remitted drafts or definite postdated checks are reported as unpaid. An accounting journal and a customer payment journal are printed.

Revise and remit the payment documents to the bank again or include them in the customer debt routine.

Accounts receivable and the general ledger are updated. The following account entries are created:

Accounting Rule Account Debit Credit
AR75-196/AR75–197 Drafts (and postdated checks) remitted for collection on the due dateorDrafts remitted for discount   x
AR30–195 Drafts not remitted x  

The remittance status is set to 50.
