UK / General credit transfer module for exporting payment orders to the bank

on 5/25/16, 10:08 AM 560 views

We have successfully created payment orders and are trying to generate a credits transfer file we can export them into, so we can upload to our e-banking in the UK

We have tried the Account Banking SEPA Credit Transfer module, but that is specifically for European Union payments. We are making payments just in the UK, so all of our supplier bank account data is set up for domestic BACS payments in the UK rather than with IBAN and BIC codes.

Is there a module that we can install for UK payment orders exports / credit transfers or a general one we can mould to what we need....or any better suggestions? Thank in advance (apologies if I've missed something obvious!)

Hi Alex. We have a hacky solution that works fine for us using the Odoo export option.

  1. We create the payment order

  2. On the Payment Order Screen, click the grey 'More' button > Export

  3. Select fields needed for the file e.g. bank account number, account name etc. (save as a default so it's easier next time)

  4. Export it

We are lucky that the software we use to submit our credits file to the bank can be configured to accept almost any credits file and layout. I don't know if you have the same luxury.

However we did notice that you might be able to make your own file layout using the Payment Export Types. You can find this in the Accounting module at the bottom of the left menu under Miscellaneous. We were going to look into this a bit more if we had time - will let you know if we find out anything here.

Hi Pul. We have the same issue in DK. Did you find any solution to create/export a payment file for UK ?
