Signing up for ACH Debit

As commissioned by US Customs (

To participate, you must file entries through ABI using statement processing, and your financial institution must be a U.S. bank NACHA participant with Electronic Data Interchange capability. Importer payers must also have a federal identification number (tax ID number or social security number). ACH applications may be obtained by contacting the Revenue Division in Indianapolis, IN or an ABI Client Representative.

Please confirm with your bank, the banks transit routing number and your account number to avoid transactional errors. The payer will be held responsible for any errors that result from incorrect account information.

Complete an ACH debit application form. If multiple accounts are to be used, complete a separate application for each account. If you use more than one broker, only one broker needs to be identified on the application. Be sure all bank information on the application matches the information on the check specification sheet.


Mail or fax the application to the U.S.Customs and Border Protection Revenue Division at:
