The National Automated Clearing House Association (NACHA) and Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the U.S Department of the Treasury have introduced a standard entry class code for International ACH Transactions (IAT). When you make payments to a vendor or refund a payment to a customer who is outside the United States, you must use this code in the transaction to denote the origin of the payment.

Complete the following tasks before you generate an IAT EFT file:

  • Set up information for your company in the Legal entities form. These details are used as the originator information when the IAT Electronic File Transmission (EFT) file is generated. For more information, see Legal entities (form).

  • Set up bank account details, such as Bank account, Routing number type, Routing number, and SWIFT code, for your company in the Bank accounts form. For more information, see Bank accounts (form) and .

  • Set up details for the vendor who receives the payment in the Vendors form. These details are used as the receiver or beneficiary information in the IAT EFT file. For more information, see Create a vendor account.

  • Set up bank account details for the vendor in the Vendor bank accounts form. These details are used as the receiver Depository Financial Institution (DFI) information in the IAT EFT file. For more information, see Vendor bank accounts (form).

  • Set up details for the customer who receives a refund in the Customers form. These details are used as the originator information in the IAT EFT file. For more information, see Create a customer record.
