1826866 - Open Receivables/Payables with Clearing Proposal not open for automatic Payment Allocation.

Symptom

You have defined suitable Rules for Analyzing Memo Lines in the Business Configuration which work in simulation mode. When importing a bank statement, containing the correct references, your expectation is that open receivables/payables are identified and automatically assigned in a payment allocation. However, there are open receivables/payables which are not allocated.

Reproducing the Issue

You can access relevant payment allocations either in:

  1. Work Center: Payment Management.
  2. Navigate to View: Payment Allocations.
  3. Select the relevant payment allocation.

- or via the posted bank statement.

  1. Work Center: Liquidity Management.
  2. View: Bank Statements.
  3. Navigate to the relevant bank statement and edit.
  4. Follow the link Postprocessing required to access the relevant payment allocation.

Cause

A clearing proposal based on another payment transaction has already been created for the open receivables/payable. Clearing proposals are created e.g. in case document references match, however the amount paid represents an overpayment. Invoices for which a clearing proposal already exists are not regarded as open for automatic payment allocation anymore.

Resolution

Make sure whether an open payment allocation including a clearing proposal already exists for the open receivable/payable. Then you can decide which payment should be eventually allocated and cleared.
