Number under which the direct debit pre-notification was created.


Direct debit pre-notifications are created in automatic payment transactions by the pre-notification run if the following apply:

  • A payment method was selected in which the corresponding indicator is set.
  • The corresponding indicator is set for the items to be pre-notified.

The direct debit pre-notification is printed and sent to the payer, so that the payer can ensure that sufficient funds are in the account. The direct debit pre-notification contains at least the following information:

  • Number of the direct debit pre-notification (for later communication)
  • Mandate reference of the SEPA mandate used
  • Creditor ID of the collecting company code
  • Date the direct debit is to be executed
  • Amount and currency of the direct debit

Typically, the pre-notification also lists the receivables due that make up the amount of the direct debit.

The number of the direct debit pre-notification comes from number range object FKKPRENOT. You maintain the number range intervals using transaction FPN11.

It is also possible that direct debit pre-notifications were generated outside of Contract Accounts Receivable and Payable. In that case, you have to enter the number used for the pre-notification and the origin of this number.
