Troubleshooting


Error message 'Detach bank account': add an account that already exists under a different company
The account you want to add to a company already exists under another company or is archived but previously existed under one of your other companies. This may be the case in a company merger or an error in your MyCodaBox data.
In this case, you can move the account yourself via MyCodaBox.
  1. Follow the instructions above to add the account.
    When you click Save Mandate, you see the error message "This bank account already exists in our system. It is assigned to a company of your own environment".
  2. Click Detach bank account.

  3. Confirm the action via the button Detach bank account in the pop-up.
    Confirm: detach bank account
  4. Click Save Mandate again.
    A new bank mandate is generated. In the tab CODA for this company, you can see the required action(s) (mandate signature).
    You will receive CODA once this mandate is signed and activated.

Error message 'CODA can not be ordered'

When adding a bank account in MyCodaBox via the instructions above, the following message appears:
Melding: bankrekening kan niet worden besteld in MyCodaBoxIt may be a bank investment account: some specific bank investment accounts can be shared between companies: this type of bank account belongs to the bank and no mandate can be ordered on this type of account.


What types of bank accounts can be added?
  • New bank account belonging to a partner bank
  • Archived bank account belonging to a partner bank, previously linked to the same company or to a different company within the same environment


The bank account must be unique in our system.

If the system detects that this account already exists, an error message appears when you choose Save Mandate (see the above error messages).


Types of accounts not compatible with CODA / Rejected by the bank
Some account types do not allow the delivery of CODA files, either because it is a rule set by the bank or by CodaBox. Once the mandate is signed and sent to the bank, it will be refused by the bank.
Rule set by No CODA delivery forNote
Bank
  • Third party accounts 
  • ING Lion accounts
  • KBC investment accounts
May differ from bank to bank.

CodaBox always accepts a mandate linked to an account for a Belgian company number because we do not know the type of account for which CODA is ordered.

The mandate is sent to the bank who decides what to do with this request, according to the rules they have established.

CodaBox
  • Private accounts of natural persons
  • Foreign IBAN
Restriction only if the account is not linked to a Belgian company number.

No CODA delivery for foreign IBANs.
