Formal vs. Informal Help Informal Formal


Vo Huong


In our business, we send 820 transaction with BPR01 = I, BPR04 = NON.
The amount limit of BPR02 is 10 which is 8 digits for the whole number, and 2 digits for decimal number.
With the cost increase in the industry, we hit the check with amount over 100,000,000.xx. Our translator was interrupted because it is non compliance.
We understand that the ACH requires the amount as stated above but we don't send ACH. If we split the amount so BPR02 is under the amount limit, it can cause the issue because of the same check number.
Please advise what is other options?
Also, in new version 7030, could this issue be considered to have a different rule between payment and non-payment?
