Common conditions that cause ACH upload errors: • The use of special characters.

• Effective date out of range: Some accounting software will produce a file with an effective date outside the parameters set by the bank. The Business Account holder will need to choose a new effective date. • Company Name and ID do not match: Company Name and ID found in batch header must match the one enabled for your business by your financial institution. Values must be identical. • Block count: Total number of records in the file (include all headers and trailer) must be evenly divisible by ten. If not, additional records consisting of all nines are added to the file after the initial nine record to fill out the block ten. Platform allows validation of nine records. • SEC code not supported: Common issue, typically resolved by entitling the business permission to upload such SEC type. After the uploaded ACH file is accepted, it is available for processing by the financial institution.
