To participate in ACH payment for customs fees, you must file entries through ABI using statement processing, and your financial institution must be a U.S. bank NACHA participant with Electronic Data Interchange capability. Importer payers must also have a federal identification number (tax ID number or social security number). You can contact the Revenue Division Indianapolis, IN or an ABI Client Representative.
Please complete the ACH debit application form in the link here to sign up. If you plan to use multiple accounts, complete a separate application for each account. If you use more than one broker, only one broker needs to be identified on the application. Be sure all bank information on the application matches the information on the check specification sheet.
The Revenue Division typically processes applications in seven to 10 days, and will send your payer unit number and the effective ACH participation date in writing once processing is complete.
