Overview of Accounts Receivable Draft Processing
Drafts are payment instruments that allow direct communication between the bank of the supplier and the bank of the customer. In most countries, a draft is a promise to pay a debt. The use of a draft for payment of obligations affects the legal nature of the underlying liabilities. Therefore, you must classify, track, and report drafts separately from other types of payments and obligations.
Many areas of the world use draft processing, although the payment instrument might be referred to as something other than a draft. For example, in Asia Pacific, the draft process is commonly used for post-dated checks. In the United States, it is used for credit card payments.
Both you, as the supplier, or your customer can originate a draft. Regardless of who originates it, you must enter the draft into the system (a process which is also known as draft acceptance), remit it for collection, and then record the collection of the money from your customer. Drafts can also be discounted and might have a contingent liability.
There are two types of A/R Drafts: Manual and Automatic Drafts. This refers to the customer's pre-authorization of a draft, rather than the methods used to enter/process the draft records.
Manual drafts are also called customer acceptance drafts because a customer must accept them before they can be remitted to the bank. The following types of manual drafts are available:
The supplier prints the draft with bank account information.
The supplier prints the draft with the bank name only.
The customer prints the draft with bank account information.
The customer prints the draft with the bank name only.
The system can distinguish drafts with only a bank name from those with complete bank account information. This is helpful because banks generally assess an additional fee to collect drafts if you do not provide account information.
The program used for this in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne is Customer/Supplier Drafts Entry (P03B602).
Automatic drafts are also called preauthorized drafts because they do not require customer acceptance. You and your customer agree in advance that the customer will pay with a draft.
The program used for this in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne is Preauthorized Drafts (R03B671).
