A payment notification can be easily created by recording the relevant information on a document. This includes the payment amount, the payment date and the name of the debtor. It is advisable to provide the document with a clear reason for payment so that it can be assigned more easily at a later date. A signature from the payee or a confirmation from the bank can increase the credibility of the document.

If a customer sends me a payment advice, what do I have to do?

You are not obliged to do anything. The payment notice only contains information. Wait a few days for the payment to be credited to your account and then compare the payment with the invoice, as is customary in your business.

Do I have to send my suppliers a payment notice when I pay their invoices?

No. Rather, it is a courtesy, e.g. if the amount owed is very high, the payment terms are unusually long or it is an international transfer. Therefore, a payment proposal is neither directly requested nor required.

What should I bear in mind when dealing with payment notices?

As proof that a payment has been made, it is important that the payment notifications are stored securely. It is recommended that they are stored electronically or archived in paper form. It is also advisable to label them with the purpose of the payment so that they can be assigned more easily in the future.
