Disclaimer: Kotapay (formerly InterceptEFT) is an unaffiliated third party that some of our customers have engaged to provide direct deposit, tax payments, ACH processing, or credit card merchant services.

Within Accounting CS, there are a few small differences when you setup and process direct deposit using Kotapay. This topic covers those differences and explains the steps you’ll need to follow when uploading your files to Kotapay.

Setup steps

Generally, you need to perform these steps only once.

  1. Establish an account with Kotapay. You can contact Kotapay by phone (866.431.9926) or online at kotapay.com/thomsonreuters.
  2. Enter transmission information for the firm, which will be provided by Kotapay.
  3. Activate Kotapay integration for each of the appropriate clients by marking the ACH processed by Kotapay checkbox in the Direct Deposit tab of the Setup > Bank Accounts screen for each client.

Processing steps

  1. Print your checks as usual.
  2. Choose Actions > Process Direct Deposit. For clients set up for processing using Kotapay, unprocessed transactions show Kotapay in the Method column. Show me.

  3. Create your ACH files. When the confirmation dialog displays to tell you that your ACH files have been created, click OK.
  4. In the Kotapay File Submission screen that automatically displays, verify that the information in the EFT Batch Summary list is accurate. If there are multiple files, you may need to use the Next and Back buttons to view all all of the files. Show me.

  5. Click the Submit File button to transmit the ACH file to Kotapay, or the Reject button if there is a problem with the files. Show me.

Note: Kotapay files that have been reversed within the Manage Files dialog are transmitted automatically without giving you the option to submit or reject the reversal file. This is by design per request from Kotapay.

If you have questions about submitted files, you can contact Kotapay at 866.431.9926.
