With the COVID-19 pandemic, the ACH network saw 2 billion new payments in 2020, rising to a total of 26.8 billion ACH payments, according to NACHA.

While Microsoft Dynamics GP supports ACH vendor payments through Manual Payments in the Payables module, getting it set up to post to the General Ledger requires some workarounds and manual processes. First, you may have to contact your bank to obtain the proper ACH format, then configure vendor accounts and GP checkbooks to integrate with the bank’s format. You can enter the invoice and payment separately and use the Manual Payments screen to enter the payment itself.  Check out the thread on the Dynamics Community site to learn more: Click Here

There are a couple of methods to make ACH payments post to the General Ledger in Dynamics GP, but as a company's number of locations and vendors grow, all of these methods can prove to be slow, clunky and error prone.

In short, doing it the old fashioned way is not sustainable.
