How To F-53 (Post Outgoing Payment)

This functions allows you to post a vendor payment manually and clear the open item(s). Most of the outstanding invoices will be paid by payment program (F110), but it may happen that for some rarely used bank accounts this program will not be configured. In such cases payment for vendor documents will be done manually and you’ll need to post the bank documents using the transaction F-53.


You need to pay an invoice based on a business requirement where you don’t want to wait for the next payment run or you need to pay an invoice from the bank account that is not relevant for the automatic payment program.
