Create Invoice Remittance for Direct Debiting/Factoring

This document explains how you select customer invoices that should be sent to the bank for direct debiting or that you have sold or pledged to a factoring company.


All customer invoices that belong to payment class 5 (Direct debiting) or 6 (Factoring) and that match the specified selection criteria are included in a printed or electronic remittance statement.

When using a company bank account in a foreign currency, only invoices with the same currency as the bank account will be selected. With a company bank account in the company’s local currency, invoices in all currencies will be selected.
