In-House Cash (IHC) - Account Maintenance & Bank Determination setup

Key theory background:

Bank area: Central organizational unit of current accounts. It processes and manages all the current accounts in an independent self-contained system.

A company has to be assigned to each Bank Area. There must be a Bank Area that represents the IHC center. If you have multiple IHC Centers then multiple bank areas are required.

The IHC center receives its own Bank Key, in other words it behaves like a Bank on its own. (see IMG reference: IHC_V_BANK_AREA)

(*) To avoid problems when checking the length of the bank key or number, you can use the FI-BL transaction FIHC to create it.

Product: Set of current account attributes. Used as a template for defining fields, conditions and limits, features and payment trx operations.

  • You define Products (template) and then create accounts based on them.
  • Assign the products to the bank areas in which they will be used.
  • A Product Configurator is available for defining the products (see IMG reference).

Because the limit categories are each linked to various functions it is advised NOT to change them. These limits are currency dependent, which is ruled by the account currency.

For account statements recipient use BP Role ‘BKK030’
