End-to-end payment automation
When approving and sending payments to the bank, you get an immediate receipt for the payment being delivered, always keeping you up to date with the payment flow.
All vendor payments are handled directly inside Business Central through a profound validation of payment information which means that you minimize the risk of errors while optimizing the security around your payment processes.
Every payment, status file, and account statement is automatically transferred to and from the bank, meaning that the time-consuming and insecure process of manually handling file export and import to the bank is minimized.
With Payment Management, you get access to a wide range of payment methods and ensure a thorough validation of payment information throughout the payment process.
Complete your bookkeeping
Finally, you can complete your bookkeeping by importing account statements, automatic document match, settlement of combined payments, and automatic creation of payment journals. With the advanced bank account reconciliation functionality, you get a 100% match on vendor payments.
When a period’s account statement is loaded into Business Central, Payment Management has already closed and posted the entries.
These entries are then automatically matched with customer payments based on customer number, document number, or any other kind of information from the bank
Fixed, recurring items such as bank fees are easily handled too. If there are any unclear entries after reconciliation, such as errors in the notification text, these items can be automatically transferred to a draft where you can make posting proposals.

The built-in direct communication means that you can automatically import and export payment files to and from the bank. Moreover, you can import bank account statements for the subsequent bank account reconciliation.
