The National Automated Clearing House Association (Nacha) approved to increase the Same Day ACH per-transaction limit to $1 million, effective March 18, 2022. This will be a tenfold increase from the current $100,000 maximum, which took effect in March 2020.
The $1 million limit will be beneficial for business-to-business payments, as the higher limit allows larger payments to use the Same-Day ACH system at a lower cost and with comparable remittance information to Fedwires. The new limit will also benefit other payments, from insurance claim payments and payroll funding, to tax payments and more.
