Automated Clearing House (ACH) Information

Automated Clearing House Process

Craven County Government is pleased to announce the implementation of automated invoice payments for all vendors. The process will mean that as a vendor, you can choose the option of receiving your invoice payments through ACH (Automated Clearing House). Using ACH, our payment to you will be deposited directly into an account specified by you on the ACH Authorization form (PDF). We trust that you will find this process beneficial, as payments will be received sooner than with our current check process.

Payments & Notification

Once we receive the completed form, our system will be updated with the information provided. As each payment is processed, we will send an email notifying you that a deposit has been made to the account you specified, along with an invoice remittance advice. On the form, we request an email address for sending the payment notification.

It is important that the email notification be sent to a person who will use the information provided to credit our account with your company. Automatic payments will be processed on a weekly schedule just as the check payments have been in the past.

Completing & Returning the Form

We need all information on the form to be completed along with a copy of a voided check from the designated checking account to be credited. We hope that you choose to take advantage of this convenient and fast form of invoice payment. Once your information is received and processed in our system, automatic payments to you will begin.

Please return the completed form to the Craven County Finance Department via fax to 252-636-6638. Forms can also be mailed to our office.
