We Get Questions...

Q and A
Q.)   We have a business account holder who wrote a check (without an auxiliary on-us field) to a company. That company converted the check to a CCD transaction. Would that be within the rules?
A.)   Although business checks under $25,000 without an auxiliary on-us field can be converted to a POP, ARC or BOC transaction, the ACH Rules do not allow for these paper checks to be converted to RCK or CCD transactions. With this in mind, the transaction can be returned R11 (Customer Advises Entry Not in Accordance with the Terms of the Authorization). You might also find it helpful to view or print the Consumer SEC Comparison Chart found on the Documents on Demand page of our website but you’ll need to log in first as these resources are available to TCHPA members only.

Nacha Rule Change Spotlight: Expanding Same Day ACH

(TCHPA webinar)

Feb 02, 2021 2:00 - 2:30 PM, Eastern

On March 19, 2021, the ACH Network expands access to Same Day ACH by allowing SDA transactions to be submitted for an additional two hours each business day through a new, third processing window. This will allow Same Day ACH files to be submitted until 4:45pm ET (1:45 pm PT), providing greater access for Originating Depository Financial Institutions (ODFIs) and their account holders. Join TCHPA as we discuss the new rule requirements, impacts, and considerations.
