Frequently Asked Questions
We are a non-US owned airline. Can we join ACH?
Yes, provided you have a (1) Designator Code, and an Accounting and/or Prefix Code, (2) an Agreement with an ACH or ICH Participant that allows for settlement through the Clearing House, and (3) open a bank account at U.S. Bank for use in ACH Settlements.
We aren’t an airline. Can we join ACH?
Yes, provided you have an Agreement with an ACH or ICH Participant that allows for settlement through the Clearing House and open a bank account at U.S. Bank for use in ACH Settlements.
Why am I required to open a bank account with U.S. Bank?
ACH has a long standing principle of facilitating the Settlements by performing as Agent only. ACH does not have, nor want, access to the Settlement Funds. Our partner, U.S. Bank, has the technology to conduct the Settlements while allowing you to maintain control of your Settlement Funds.
What currencies can I settle in?
Settlements between two ACH Participants are conducted in CAD, EUR, GBP and USD. The billing party decides what currency they want to generate an invoice in and be paid in. Settlements between an ACH Participant and an ICH Participant are only conducted in USD.
