The purpose of this menu is to indicate the public holidays for the country used in the product definition, for the calendar years over which the bank's current business is spread. Financial institutions are usually closed and do not process payments during holidays nor repayments for loans. The Holiday menu allows the creation of holiday records specific to the bank's country or organization.
There are two methods used for loan repayment processing when holidays are taken into consideration in the schedule projections:
Shift forward: the payment date is shifted to the first working day after the usual scheduled execution date.
Shift backward: the payment date is shifted to the previous working day before the usual scheduled execution date.
In order to set up specific days when payments are not processed, follow these steps:
