By Ending ACH Transaction Fees on Receivables, The Neat Financial Management Platform Quickly Pays For Itself

PHILADELPHIA (August 16, 2022) 

The Neat Company is the only small business financial management platform to offer inbound ACH/bank transfers at no additional cost. By eliminating the standard 1% ACH transaction fee, a subscription for Neat’s all-in-one financial management platform, which offers bookkeeping, invoicing, and financial document management, essentially becomes free to any small business that has $29,000 of invoices paid via bank transfer each year. Anything beyond that is money saved for Neat subscribers.

Neat Free ACH

For nearly 50 years, small businesses have relied on ACH/bank transfers for both safety and convenience when sending and receiving electronic payments. According to Nacha, the organization that operates the ACH payment system, more than 29 billion ACH payments were made in 2021. These payments were valued at close to $73 trillion. Small businesses are commonly subjected to a 1% ACH fee on every transaction, even though each transaction may cost the processor less than a quarter to facilitate. For a consultant, freelancer, or contractor, these fees add up quickly. With The Neat Company, these fees are gone. 

“As a small business owner myself, I always sought to maximize value from the services I used and from every dollar that came into my hands,” said Garrett Baird, President & CEO of The Neat Company. “Neat customers deserve those same advantages. Not only will our customers be able to receive electronic payments for the invoices they issue through the Neat system, but by avoiding overblown ACH/bank transfer fees on receivables, they can effectively pay for their Neat subscription with the ACH fees they save.”

This ACH savings is the latest example of what the Neat product team works to develop and refine every day. To calculate potential savings, all small businesses need to do is identify the percentage of their receivables currently paid via bank transfer and then calculate what is 1% of that number. Neat also offers a simple calculator for those who want to see how much they can save by accepting bank transfer payments free of fees.
