In Switzerland every company sends invoices with bank payment slip. Normally is that an orange payment slip with reference number. In this number are serveral important informations. bank clearing, bank account no. and also your OpenERP invoice no. Question 1: Do you have implemented suisse orange payment slips in OpenERP yet?

Now you customer pays the invoice and you have an incoming payment on your bank account. From swiss banks you can download now your incoming payment-data as file. In this file you see the payment reference no., the amount and several other informations. With this data you can assign automatically which invoice is payed.

Question 2: Do you have this payment assignment implemented?

Question 1 : Yes, you should use this module http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~camptocamp/openerp-swiss-localization/7.0/files

Question 2 : As OpenERP generated the BVR Ref code, the import of the file, from the bank or Postfinance, will link the invoice with the payment.

Question 1: how to install and use swiss payment slip (Oranger Einzahlungschein / ESR), take a look here

To adjust the settings/layout of the slip:

  1. in OpenERP: SETTINGS -> COMPANIES -> open <your-company> -> Tab "BVR Data": there you confing some basic positions for the payment slip
  2. follow instruction in my installation-instruction link (config from inside your bank ) to enable the slip for each bank
  3. in OpenERP: SETTINGS -> TECHNICAL -> Webkit Headers/Footers -> open <bvr header=""> -> there you config the style which can be different for each company if you use multicompany for example :)
  4. on Server: addons directory (e.g. /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/addons/) in folder /l10n_ch_payment_slip/report/ you edit the report files (if you want to customize the whole a4 page...). the files multi_bvr.mako and bvr.mako contains the fix layout/styles for those 2 default reports

Question 2: Yup, of cource thx to camp2camp

  1. In OpenERP go to ACCOUNTING -> Bank Statement -> Create a new Statement....Choose Name, Report and so on...

  2. you'll see the Button "IMPORT BVR". guess what will happen if you click on it? yes, in the popup you select your esr / v11 file and press IMPORT... all payments will be imported... now you continue with the reconciliation / assignement

if this helped, please vote, if question is answered please mark as closed. if nothing of both, please let me know

Thanks for your module. How do you import the *.v11 file ?

Thru the menu "Client payments" you may only import csv

a client payments is used for single payment entered manually. a .v11 = esr file normaly contains several payments... so is treated as list. use method described below in answer to question 2 http://help.openerp.com/question/36801/payment-procedure-for-switzerland/?answer=38931#post-id-38931
