1. It is an electronic document sent by bank which gives details of the

transactions done by the account holder.
2. The electronic document can be remitted by the bank in the following formats
MT940, Multicash, BAI etc.
3. This statement is used in SAP to do an automatic reconciliation.
4. When this statement is uploaded in SAP it clears the various Bank clearing
accounts such as the Check out , check in accounts and the main bank
account gets posted.

For eg:

1. When we purchase goods from Vendor .The journal entry passed through T
code F-43 is
Inventory a/c Dr
To Vendor a/c

When we make payment to vendor through APP T code F110 it clears the
vendor account and bank clearing accounts gets opened. The journal entry
passed here is
Vendor a/c Dr
To Check Issue a/c

2. When the goods are sold to the customer .The journal entry passed through T
code F-22 is
Customer a/c Dr
To Sales a/c

When the payment is received from the customer the accounting entry
passed through APP run F110 is
Check Deposit a/c Dr
To Customer a/c

Here we have to select open item management check box while creating
Bank clearing GL accounts because it helps us find which transactions are yet
to be cleared. These sub-accounts are cleared with the help of EBS.
Electronic Bank statement Process Flow Chart

Process Flow Chart



Receiving Electronic bank statement from Bank (Format Swift




For the basic understanding, in this scenario we have the following
bank GL codes for our bank :
400010 SBIM Main Bank a/c BALANCES (FBL3N)

400008 Checks Issue a/c

400009 Checks Deposit a/c

When the bank statement is uploaded in SAP the following will happen:

For checks issued out based on checks cleared in the bank account the following
entry will be passed


400008 Checks Issue a/c Dr

400000 Main Bank a/c Cr

For checks Received in - based on checks cleared in the bank account the following
entry will be passed


400000 Main Bank a/c Dr

400009 Checks Deposit a/c Cr

Thus after uploading the bank statement in the system ,The Main Bank a/c will
exactly match with the balance shown in the bank. All the clearing accounts having
balances will be the reconciliation items.

statement then the statement can be nmanually entered in the manual bank
statement and uploaded.

account (with different GL account in each case),the GL account field can contain a
masked output.The masking is due to using

++++++ for the main bank account.For the sub accounts all the other digits are
masked expect the last one.

business transaction codes.
