The ACH recurring payment authorization form is used to permit a company, bank, or merchant to perform regular and scheduled withdrawals from an individual’s checking or savings account. The frequency of the transactions can be specified within the form to cater to the needs of the company and the client, providing an efficient way to pay monthly bills. No prior notification will be provided to signal that the account will be debited, however, should the date or the amount of the withdrawal change, an alert will be sent via email or phone. It should also be noted that the cancellation of this type of form will only be effective if notice is given in writing 15 days prior to the next date of billing.
