Top 2017 NACHA Operating Rule Changes affecting you and your organization & Major 2016 rule changes!
National Automated Clearinghouse Association (NACHA) is charged with overseeing the Automated Clearing House (ACH) system. NACHA governs the exchange of ACH payments and define roles and responsibilities of financial institutions and other participants(small businesses) in ACH network. Each company (the Company or Originator) originating ACH entries must comply with the Operating Rules and Guidelines (the Rules) of the NACHA, the rule making body governing the ACH Network.
NACHA updates these Rules on an annual basis. NACHA rules violations carry fines. If these fines are levied against the financial institution they may be passed back to the corporate originator depending on the specifics of the case and the details of their contract with the financial institution. The fines are levied by the U.S. government and funds collected are the property of the government, not the financial institution.
