Summary: This article will explain what an ACH ID is and when they need to be entered.
ACH ID's are a unique identifier for an Association's operating bank account that allows it to receive funds via an automatic clearing house, or, electronic transfer. Typically, these ACH ID's are set up by default as the 1+ the Association's 9 digit Tax ID.
When adding an association, by adding the TaxID the ACH ID for that association's operating account will default to 1+Association Tax ID.
There are times where two (or more) associations share the same Tax ID (occasionally with master/subs). While having the same Tax ID is okay, a unique ACH ID is needed for the bank to know which association's ACH transactions are which in the ACH file.
To override the default, enter it on the Association > Bank Account screen and edit the account. A blank ACH ID field means the system is using the default (1+AssociationTaxID). Enter the ACH ID that matches what the bank has if it is different than the default.
