Development work for this case has been completed.

The change will be available in version:12.0.0821

1. The following changes were made(Include Database object names, Program classes and any other relevant information):

  1. Added HFC All accounts file format
  2. Changed the banking entries listed in file to be restricted by the "Banks" listed in "Company Administration -> Bank -> Number Mapping".
    This restriction can be used to achieve the following objective:
    A company has bank accounts in ANZ, BSP & HFC. The organisation wants to send a direct file to BSP and HFC. All other remaining employees are paid from the ANZ account.

2. Affected Areas:

  1. Pay Bank Submission

3. The issue was caused by:

  1. New feature

4. Notes: Important notes for Documentation

  1. File format for HFC All accounts is ".pc2". Configure this in "Integration -> PAYDirectBankFile -> FileExtensionHFCAll"
  2. Configure the BSB information for each bank in the menu "Company Administration -> Bank -> Number Mapping". The list of BSB numbers is available in the HFC bank file documentation attached in this case.

5. Next Step:

  1. UAT - send a sample file format to HFC for verification and approval
  2. Documentation

    Hi Team,

    Next Step - We are awaiting a reply from HFC.

    --- Reply from Georgina ---

    Thank you for your email and here is the clarification.

     

    That portion of the document will be updated internally, however,  because “53” is CREDIT and “13” is DEBIT that they are supposed to cancel each other out so that the amount is zeroized as provided in the Actual result.

     

    The “B” should have been negative instead of a sum. The Bank is paying (credit) the employee or vendor by taking the money (debit) from the client or company account to cover it.

    Hope this clarifies.


    --- Email from Rashna ---


    Thank you for the clarification.

    As stated in the email, can you please forward us the updated file specification. We have to submit the document to the developers in Australia as a development reference before any changes can be made. 

    Next Step - Awaiting a reply from HFC.
