Think about all the time you spend cutting checks, paying suppliers, reconciling statements, preparing payroll…the list goes on. Edmonton State Bank’s Cash Management program simplifies all of those time-consuming, but necessary, facets of doing business. With Cash Management you can quickly and easily:
- Make ACH payments and collections
- Complete money wires online
- Pay federal tax payments using the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System
What is ACH?
The Automated Clearing House (ACH) is an electronic payment network whereby funds are transferred between financial institutions. Unlike a check, an ACH transaction may be either a debit or credit. Clearing is provided electronically rather than through the physical movement of checks or cash. The ACH Network is the nation's largest electronic payments network.
Using ACH, you can easily conduct activities such as:
- Direct deposit of employee payroll checks to any bank
- Collection of payments, rent, or fees from customers
No more payroll checks to write, and then waiting for them to clear. The transactions settle in one amount and you can reconcile your books much sooner. Plus, no lost checks to worry about, and you’ll save on the ever-increasing cost of postage.
