I mainly use smartTan which is called chipTan by my bank.

This was actually a bug. I'll needed some time to find it, I just pushed the fix 
minutes ago.

It is even more intelligent than a switch: KMyMoney checks if the IBAN of the 
origin account and the beneficiary's IBAN match and if they are from SEPA 
countries. If both is true, the BIC is not required.

Sure. Unfortunately this is quite some work. I plan to create a 
QAbstract...Model which reads all payees and creates a list of all IBANs etc. 
from it. Qt has no methods/classes to handle multiple completion, because if 
you select a payee by name, it must be able to complete the IBAN and BIC field 
as well (<- here is the "quite some work").

It's my plan that sent transactions automatically are entered as scheduled 
transactions – this was actually one of the main reasons for me to start the
