Type: New Feature
Affects Version/s: Trunk
Fix Version/s: None
The patch includes data changes and services to provide support for the BACS modulus bank account validation process.
There are some new entities to store the BACS data related to sort codes, substitutions and weights for the validation mechanism. One new screen under the Accounts application to allow standard BACS data importing/updating and a test routine.
Search http://www.vocalink.com for the published specifications the validation routine follows. The site also contains the data files required to populate the validation tables, I've not included them in the patch because they change over time and I'm not sure on license issues with republishing them.
For any ISCD data file you'll have to speak to your BACS provider as they aren't published. This implementation handles the oldish text file import and not the newer XML version as I only have ISCD data in text format at the moment.
Things still in the pipeline:
Convert account numbers to 8 digit format as per BACS rules.
