Invalid bank account

When a bank rejects the test transaction we send to verify the account, the bank account is marked as invalid and then inactivated in Bill.com. An email notification will be received by the user that set up the bank account. The email will contain a return code from the vendor's bank, giving the exact reason for the failure.

The reason can be found within Bill.com as well.

  1. Hover over the gear icon, click Settings
  2. Under Your Company, click Bank Accounts
  3. Click the bank account number that shows Invalid under Verification Status.
  4. Hover over details, click Audit Trail.
  5. In the Reason for Invalidating field, there will be a return code, along with the reason why the bank was invalidated

For more information, contact the bank's ACH (Automated Clearing House) Department, and provide them the details of the transaction.
