Reproducing the Issue

Manage Automatic Payment proposal created with Alternative Payee

In general, the payment recipient and the invoice issuer (vendor) are identical. However, a payment can also be effected for an alternative payee. For this to happen, you must first specify the alternative payee. In the standard system you can specify the alternative payee in the following ways:

  • Entering the data (name, address, bank details, and so on) in open items, if this is the only item to be paid to an alternative payee

  • Entering the account number of the alternative payee in the company code-specific area of the master record of the vendor, if an alternative payee is only necessary in certain company codes for the vendor.

  • Entering the data (name, address, bank details, and so on) in the general area of the master record of the vendor, if payments are to be made to an alternative payee.

The above information is listed in order of priority. For example, if an alternative payee is specified in open items, this has priority over the specification in the master record. The same applies to customers.

If you want to enter the alternative payee in the line item, the field Payee in document must be marked in the general data area of the vendor or customer master record. This makes it possible to enter the necessary master data for the payee by marking the field Alternative payee when posting to the customer or vendor account.

Cause

Using an Alternative Payee will not change the supplier but will add the alternative payee to payee code

Resolution

Add Field "Payee Code" to Display of payment Proposal in app Manage Automatic Payments
