NACHA Rule Change

January 2015: Return Fee Entry Formatting Clarification

Effective January 1, 2015

Consumers that received an electronic Return Entry fee posted to their account often times could not link the return fee to an authorized transaction at a merchant. The NACHA rule change clarifies that the Individual Name field in the PPD Return Entry Fee transaction is used to link the fee to the original authorized ARC, BOC, or POP transaction that was returned unpaid. The Individual ID field could contain the Receiver’s name, reference number, identification number or code of the merchant to identify the customer. This change should have no impact on ACH participants as it recognizes current best practice regarding the formatting of fees for check conversion entries.
