Same Day ACH is Coming to SVB in September


On September 23, NACHA's new Same Day ACH rule will go into effect. This new rule will enable the same-day processing of ACH payments ($25K limit) through two new clearing windows: a new morning submission deadline and a new afternoon deadline. Silicon Valley Bank will have specific time deadlines for same day processing. Those deadlines will be communicated to clients well in advance of the implementation date.

>Key Benefits

This rule change will allow urgent payments to be processed the day they are due and make it easier and faster to process standard ACH transactions. SVB's clients will also be able to respond better to emergencies, make off-cycle payments (e.g., reimbursements) and correct errors in employees' pay and tax deposits.

Three Rollout Phases

Starting this September, the rule changes will be implemented in three phases over the next three years.

1. Effective September 23 2016, ACH credit transactions will be eligible for same-day processing for situations such as hourly payroll, person-to-person payments and same-day bill pay.

2. Effective September 2017, Same Day ACH debits will be added—allowing for a variety of bill payment scenarios like utility, loan and credit card payments.

3. Effective March 2018, funds from Same Day ACH credit transactions will be available for withdrawal by 5:00pm of the local time of the receiving bank.
