Nacha became aware of the fact that many financial institutions require an additional written compensation agreement for ACH returns requested, particularly when the return of funds cannot be made through an ach return post (. B for example, an R06 return code) or if funds are returned by the RDFI outside the ACH network (for example. B by wire or cheque). These include situations where the total amount of funds from an ACH transaction is not available for restitution or where funds have been transferred to another account at the RDFI. In such cases, a RDFI may require that it be compensated by odFI and that ODFI exclude and execute a compensation agreement or form submitted by the RDFI. This may result in a delay in the return of the requested funds, as financial institutions and their lawyers review the agreement and negotiate its terms, not least because some of the frequently used compensation agreements are not intended to cover ACH transactions. They are required to comply with several rules and agreements when sending ACH transactions, including, but not limited to the following transactions. United Fidelity Bank may request access to your premises and registrations to confirm compliance with ACH rules. In cases where a written request and compensation are sought, Nacha encourages financial institutions to use the following compensation agreement, instead of negotiating independently and without singlos the terms of any claim for return of funds. The ODFI, which is requesting the return of the funds, should provide the RDFI with a compensation agreement and insert correct information in all the documents indicated. The compensation agreement should be signed by a person entitled to conclude the agreement on behalf of ODFI.
A RDFI is not required to take action in response to obtaining an ODFI compensation agreement. Nacha publishes the attached form entitled „Compensation Agreement – Request for Restitution of Ach Entry Funds“ („Compensation Agreement“) for use by financial institutions in certain situations where an ODFI seeks restitution of funds from an ACH transaction, and the RDFI wishes to receive written compensation in addition to the compensation contained in the nacha operating rules („Rules“. Nacha encourages financial institutions to familiarize themselves with this agreement and to examine the situations in which they can be used, as their use will reduce delays and costs associated with negotiating the terms of agreements between financial institutions.  As ACH`s origination services increase in volume and complexity, it is more important than ever for financial institutions to have a strong legal agreement to protect themselves. This original agreement, in accordance with the post-A, shows the necessary critical conditions between financial institutions and their initiators of the ACH.
