Remittances Services Agreement
Last Updated: May 2023
This Anrok Remittances Services Agreement (“Remittance Agreement”) together with the Anrok Terms of Service available at https://anrok.com/terms-of-service (“Terms”), set forth the terms and conditions under which Anrok, Inc., ("Anrok" or "we") a Delaware corporation, agrees to provide to Customer certain ACH services in connection with Customer's use of Anrok's Platform Service.
Customer understands that through its use of Anrok’s Platform Service, Anrok will process sales tax remittances as ACH entries (“Remittances”) on the Customer’s behalf through Anrok's partner bank (“Bank Partner”) and the NACHA system. Accordingly, Customer authorizes Anrok and its Banking Partner to initiate debit entries to the bank account Customer identified to Anrok in such amounts necessary to i) fund Customer’s sales tax obligation(s) to the applicable jurisdictions identified by the Customer via Anrok’s Platform Service; ii) verify the Customer's bank account through a test deposit or debit authorization; iii) pay any other amount that is owing under this agreement or in connection with Anrok’s service, and iv) authorize Anrok to correct any errors in any authorized ACH.
Anrok and its Bank Partner are not responsible for determining whether the bank accounts of any Customer have restrictions on ACH debits. Customer understands that if Customer does not have sufficient funds in its bank account to pay for a Remittance, then Anrok and its Banking Partner will not be able to pay out the Remittances to the applicable jurisdictions and neither Anrok nor its Banking Partner will be liable for any consequences or claims directly or indirectly arising from such failure. In the event of a failed ACH debit, Anrok may (i) debit the bank account or any other account owned in whole or in part by Customer to pay disbursements, fees or charges, sales taxes, or other amounts due; (ii) refuse to pay any unremitted Remittances to the applicable tax agencies, in which case the Remittance liability will become Customer’s sole responsibility; (iii) refuse to perform further Platform Services; or (iv) immediately terminate this Agreement. For any amounts due and unpaid, Anrok may assess finance charges on such amounts and recover certain fees and costs of collection associated with such amounts in accordance with Section 4.3 of the Terms.
In addition, Customer agrees to the following related to the processing of ACH payments for Remittances:
1. Customer agrees to be subject to and comply with this Agreement, the NACHA Rules, and all other applicable laws, rules and regulations as the Originator under the NACHA Rules. A free copy of th NACHA rules is available at https://www.nachaoperatingrulesonline.org/;
2. Customer authorizes each Remittance Customer instructs Anrok to transmit on its behalf pursuant to the Terms;
3. Customer will notify Anrok and its Banking Partner in a timely manner of any changes to information relating to its registration, standing or other company information that may impact its ability to legal operate within a jurisdiction.
4. Customer will not originate any Remittances on the Anrok Platform in violation of applicable laws.
5. Customer will not originate Remittances on behalf of, or for the benefit of, any entity other than the Customer itself.
6. Customer will maintain documents and authorizations related to Remittances transmitted to Anrok and its Banking Partner. Anrok and its Banking Partner will have the right to conduct audits of Customer and any Remittances, including to audit the Customer’s compliance with the Terms, the NACHA Rules, and all applicable laws;
7. Customer represents and warrants to Anrok and its Banking Partner that no Remittances submitted to Anrok will result in Remittances that would violate the sanctions program of the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Department of the Treasury;
This Agreement remains in full force and effect until we notify Customer of its termination. Anrok and its Banking Partner may terminate or suspend this Agreement for breach of this Agreement or Applicable laws and Anrok and its Banking Partners reserve the right to limit or refuse to process a Remittance for Customer.
