Description

Although the IG note for BPR04 ACH says that BPR05 through BPR15 must be included when ACH is used, does the note for BPR11 supercede this? The BPR11 note says it is required when the BPR10 is used and additional information is necessary for payee to identify the source of payment. For example, the BPR04 is equal to ACH and the BPR10 has the tax id preceded by a 1, but the BPR11 is blank because there is no additional info necessary to identify the source of payment.

The 5010 TR3 note for BPR04 ACH says that when this code is used to see the BPR05 through BPR15 for additional requirements.

Response

This issue is explicitly addressed in guide 004010X091. The note on BPR04 code ACH reads "When this code is used, information in BPR05 through BPR15 must also be included." This is different than saying that when BPR04 equals ACH BRP05 through 15 are required. Stating that information must be included in BPR05 through 15 is not an explicit requirement for every element. As a result, the note on BPR11 is not superceding the BPR04 note in any way, but it is the operative for when BPR11 is to be populated.
