CIECA BMS Messages

Invoice Add

The Invoice Add message is an electronic invoice sent to the entity receiving the service or parts.  This message maybe an individual invoice, a batch of invoices, or a statement. 

Remittance Info Add

The Remittance Information Add message can be in reply to an Invoice Add message.  It can also be in reply to a Statement Information Add message.  It is used as a Remittance Information Add message that communicates payment information.  The actual remittance (i.e. money movement) is transacted outside this message. 

Statement Info Add

The Statement Information Add messages is the request message for sending the parts and/or material monthly Statement that reconciles all of the previous parts and/or material invoices for that month.  Typically, this comes from the vendor and is sent to the purchaser (e.g. repair facility).

Remittance Error Status

The Remittance Error Status Request message can be in reply to a Remittance Add Request message to communicate errors at the Remittance Info Header level.  The message can be used when the actual remittance (i.e. money movement, EFT) transacted outside this message did not match what was included in the Remittance Info Add Request message, in the Payment Info aggregate.  It can also report when the batch total information does not match the total of the individual payment detail in that batch.
