Processing Direct Debit invoices for the first time? In general the process looks like this:
- Ask a SEPA ID at your bank and put it in Business Settings > Financial information
- Go to Financial App > Download SEPA File from Virtuagym with outstanding invoices
- Send the SEPA file to your bank & wait 3-6 days for the bank to process
- Bank will return the CAMT-file (result of the debiting)
- Upload the CAMT-file in Virtuagym to process which invoices have been paid and which payments failed
