In this particular blog I will discuss how SEPA Mandates (will say SEPA-M from now) are managed in SAP S/4HANA Central Finance (will say CFIN from now).

Before we start with the SEPA-M set up in CFIN, lets understand quickly what’s SEPA – M.

A SEPA Mandate is the authorisation for direct debit given by the customer, which allows the vendor to collect any future business payments from them at any time on their Euro-denominated bank account, of course with due advance notice.

(SEPA – Single Euro Payment Area)

 


Now assuming that this is already set up and running in source ECC system we need to plan to load/replicate this to CFIN system. Before we talk about the technical details, let’s summarise how SAP CFIN supports SEPA-M.

NOTE – This is ONLY needed when Central Payments is activated in SAP CFIN System

  • Initial Load

    • In Initial Load the SEPA-M data can be classified by validity date and can be migrated to CFIN via standard SAP Load process



  • Real time Replication & Error Handling

    • Real time replication of SEPA-M is standard SAP and is supported in AIF error handling.

    • Name Space - /FINCF

    • Interface for create - ISEPA_CR_01

    • Interface for change – ISEPA_CH_01

    • Interface for save – ISEPA_SR_01



  • Mappings

    • Mappings are already completed for customer and company codes in SAP (FINS_CFIN_MAP_MANAGE) so those mappings can be leveraged.




Reconciliation tool

SAP has provided standard reconciliation tool for SEPA-M. It can be executed as below:

SE38 >> FINS_CFIN_APAR_SEPA_REC >> Enter the criteria >> Execute


Now you will have the result of the reconciliation. Below actions can be done now:

  • Review the comparison results for a mandate.

  • Modify a mandate if needed

  • Synchronize the data for one or more mandates.

  • Refresh the comparison result if changed


 

Configuration in Source System:

  1. Transaction SM30 >> V_SEPA_CUST





























Parameter Value
ALE: Logical Name of the Consolidation System PD0CLNT700 (example name of CFIN)
ALE: Load Additional Data FIN_CFIN_APAR_SEPA_LOAD_SRC
ALE: Unload Additional Data FIN_CFIN_APAR_SEPA_UNLOAD_SRC
ALE: Filter Data FIN_CFIN_APAR_SEPA_ALE_FILTER
Function Module for Settable Button 2 FIN_CFIN_SEPA_MIGRATE_BUTTON

 

  1. Transaction BD95 >> Specify ALE Objects



  • ALE Object Type – Receiver

  • Table Name – TBD06

  • Field Name – RCVSYSTEM


 

  1. Transaction BD96 >> Filter Objects



  • Object Type - SEPAMANDAT

  • Method – CREATE/CHANGE

  • Filter Object Type – RECEIVER


 

  1. Transaction BD64 >> Maintain Distribution Model



  • Here we need to add the distribution model for all source systems

  • Also add a filter group to the BAPI & expand the node for the distribution model and find the receiver determination node under the BAPI method


Configuration in SAP S/4HANA CFIN System:

  1. Launch the Customizing activity Enable SEPA for Applications as below


CFINIMG >> Central Payment >> SEPA























Parameter Value
ALE: Logical Name of the Consolidation System PD0CLNT700 (example name of CFIN)
ALE: Load Additional Data FINS_CFIN_APAR_SEPA_LOAD
ALE: Unload Additional Data FINS_CFIN_APAR_SEPA_UNLOAD
ALE: Filter Data FINS_CFIN_APAR_SEPA_ALE_FILTER

 

  1. CFINIMG >> Central Payment >> SEPA



  • ALE Object Type – Receiver

  • Table Name – TBD06

  • Field Name – RCVSYSTEM


 

  1. CFINIMG >> Central Payment >> SEPA



  • Object Type - SEPAMANDAT

  • Method – SAVEREPLICA

  • Filter Object Type – RECEIVER


 

  1. CFINIMG >> Central Payment >> SEPA



  • Maintain Distribution Model

  • Also add a filter group to the BAPI & expand the node for the distribution model and find the receiver determination node under the BAPI method
