Manage Bank Accounts
After cash pools are defined in the Manage Cash Pools app, you can maintain bank account data and other related information for the cash pools in the bank account master data. In the Manage Bank Accounts app, open a bank account record and go to the Cash Pool section. Specify whether the bank account serves as the header account of a cash pool. Additionally, if the cash pool is a physical cash pool, specify the payment method. To do so, after you have maintained the Cash Pool ID field, press Enter to enable the Payment Method field for editing.
The bank account could also act as a subaccount of a cash pool. In this case set the values accordingly for the subaccount area. The following values are only relevant when the cash pool is a physical cash pool:
Minimum Transfer Amount
In the Manage Cash Pools app, the service provider bank can be defined. This way you can now define cash pools that are operated by banks in the app. You cannot perform a cash concentration for cash pools of this type using the Manage Cash Concentration app, as they are operated by banks.
To define a cash pool hierarchy with multi-level cash pools, you assign bank accounts as both the subaccount of a cash pool and the header account of another cash pool. This way, cash pools are associated in a hierarchical order. In a multi-level cash pool hierarchy, you can only assign cash pools whose service provider is bank as child cash pools. For cash pools whose service provider is bank, you must define the pool usage as Both Directions.
