When you set up each format on the EFT File Layouts and ACH File Layout pages, you can indicate if the payment format applies to employee payments, non-employee payments, or both. This allows an edit upon saving a voucher that enforces the following U.S. federal rules:

  • Employee ACH payments are generated as PPD or PPD+ payments only.

  • Non-employee ACH payments are generated as CCD, CCD+, or CTX payments only.

Note: It is up to you to select whether a payment format applies to employee payments, non-employee payments, or both, but you should select these values based on the requirements laid out by the U.S. Department of Treasury

PeopleSoft Payables also enforces that all EFT/ACH payments contain a bank ID, bank routing number (DFI ID), and bank account number.
