ACH Originator (Three-Part Series)
Includes a Live Event on 10/01/2019 at 1:00 PM (PDT)
As payment systems have become more complex, so have the ACH Rules. It is imperative that you, as an ACH Originator, understand your obligations and warranties. Your financial institution may have trained you on how to create the file, but do you understand the "why" and "how" of what you're doing? Electronic payments can be a challenge, but are simplified when you fully comprehend the processes and pitfalls. In this three-part series, we will focus on the Rules, risk and compliance of ACH origination, while also discussing the benefits and best practices for businesses. This course is recommended for any business submitting ACH entries to pay staff and vendors or collect payments from clients in an effort to streamline and automate your payables and receivables.
