Electronic Bank Statement in SAP

Medium to large scale businesses do thousands of transactions each day. Lot of these transactions are banking related. Reconciling bank balances with book balances manually is not possible.

Uploading manual bank statement in ERP system is a time consuming affair and prone to clerical errors due to manual intervention. Treasury staff in an organisation may end up spending lot of time usually at the end of month for reconciliation.

Electronic bank statement feature provided by SAP can save a lot of time and is error free. SAP will upload the file which is sent (FTP) by bank. Based upon SAP configurations financial postings will be done. This configuration will upload the statement automatically and at the same time will do the bank sub ledger postings and clearing postings.




Following are the basic requirements for setting up EBS in SAP:


  • House Bank
  • Bank file in specified format
  • SAP Configurations for EBS
  • Set up connection between SAP and bank for file transfer mostly secured (sFTP)
  • SAP automated batch set up

1. Account symbol creation – Account symbols are specifications for general ledger accounts. These are posted with each possible transaction contained in bank statement.

2. Assign accounts to account symbol – GL accounts are mapped to account symbols in this step.

3. Create keys for posting rule – Description for the necessary posting rules is entered in this step. Each posting rule represents a business transaction.

Transaction types in turn  are link between External Transaction Types, Posting Rules and Interpretation Algorithms. Interpretation algorithm interprets the note to payee line in bank statement and accordingly clears the open items accordingly.
