Report on Payment Orders and Transactions

How to connect Payment Orders and Transactions reports.


Modern Treasury will automatically connect Payment Orders to your bank statement Transactions. You may need to export data that connects these two data sources. This guide will describe how to do that using Modern Treasury's Reporting and export features.

One common use case is reporting on bank-reported data on your statement. This information could include FX rates, remittance information, and RDFI information.

One nuance to this data is that sometimes banks batch payments, which means that a single transaction on your statement may represent multiple payments you originated.
