Automated Clearing House (ACH) Services

From Provident Bank


The New Way to Pay

First there were paper checks and wire transfers; now, there's ACH, the more convenient, secure and low cost way to move money. The Automated Clearing House (ACH) is a nationwide system that processes large volumes of electronic credit and debit transactions and provides for the exchange of information among financial institutions.

Because it eliminates the cost and time associated with paper checks., ACH services can help improve your business's cash flow management, whether you're issuing or receiving a large number of checks, making payments or processing payroll.

You can pay vendors, suppliers, government taxes and employees - all while reaping the benefits:

  • Improved cash flow due to expedited funds availability for ACH disbursements 
  • More predictable settlements
  • Scheduled payments
  • Check fraud mitigation
  • Elimination of check printing, distribution, loss and reconcilement expenses
  • Greater payee satisfaction due to prompt payment
  • Simplified payment processing
  • Up to date account information

 

Create your ACH debit or credit transactions via ProvidentConnect, our comprehensive Online Banking Module, or upload a NACHA-formatted file through our secure server. 

ProvidentConnect provides you with the tools you need to control your payment processing - all in one place. Initiate and manage ACH transactions, receive confirmation reports for reconcilement and review detailed account activity history.


ACH Can Work For You

ACH is ideal for a number of common transactions:

Collections:

  • Pre-Authorized Collections: Provident's ACH Debit Origination Services enables you to debit business or consumer accounts on the effective date for recurring payments, invoices and dues. Prior written consent must be obtained from consumers for this type of transaction.
  • Cash Concentration: Consolidate funds from multiple locations, including retail outlet deposits and maturing investments. ACH debits are created to transfer funds from your outlying accounts to your concentration account at Provident Bank


Disbursements:

  • Direct Deposit: This service permits you to automatically deposit funds into your employees' bank accounts for recurring payroll. You may also use the ACH network for employee expense reimbursement, bonuses, commissions, pension or annuity payments, shareholder dividends, etc.
  • Vendor Payments: Allows you to settle payable using ACH credits.
