To make loan repayments from a saving account (standing instruction transfer)

Standing instructions can be set up to transfer funds from a saving account to a loan account. The transfer will take place based on the schedule defined in the standing instruction. For a loan repayment, the standing instruction schedule can be set to match the loan repayment schedule.

Note: If there isn't sufficient funds in the linked savings account, Scheduler jobs for "Execute Standing Instruction" fails and the repayment doesn't happen.
The saving account from which the transfer originates needs not belong to the same client that the loan account belongs to. The client who owns the originating account must request/authorize the standing instruction.
The originating and destination accounts must be in the same currency.
Need to describe what happens when a standing instruction cannot be completed because of a shortage of funds in the originating account. There seems to be an outstanding issue in JIRA regarding re-attempts to satisfy the standing instruction.
Locate the client or group whose savings account will be the origination of the funds for the transfer.
  1. 1.
    Click More and Create standing instructions to create new standing instructions.
  2. 2.
    Complete the fields on the Create Standing Instruction form. See Standing Instruction form fields.
  3. 3.
    Click Submit.
The standing instruction will be created and will be in effect from the Validity from date until the To date inclusive; or until the standing instruction is Disabled.
