Appendix F: Country Specific Bank Account Validations

Bank Account Validation by Country
• The Check Digit is might be mandatory depending upon the country-specific rules.


Validation Rules
The fields are checked for validity by adopting the following rules:
Check Digit
• Length should be a maximum of 2 numeric characters.
• If the check digit is less than 2 digits, then it is converted to a 2 digit number by prefixing it with a zero.

Check Algorithm for Account Number using Check Digit
A check digit is calculated (CD1) from the Account Number in the following manner.
This is then used as the basis for the check digit validity test.

In this case, the "Please enter a value of 2 characters for the Check Digit" is accurate.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create supplier bank account in France via iSupplier portal (leaving check digit blank)
2. Observe error when attempting to save
3. Create supplier bank account in France via Supplier Entry > Banking Details (leaving check digit blank)
4. Observe account is saved successfully

The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, users are able to create supplier bank accounts despite not meeting the country-specific validation requirements.
