Why is my franchisee's bank account rejected?
Reasons an bank account might be rejected
The bank details weren’t be verified
It’s possible incorrect bank details were submitted. For example the bank isn’t accepted in the franchisee’s country or the bank name didn’t match the one on the document.
The provided details didn’t match the document
It’s possible certain details weren’t matching the ones included in the document you provided. For example, the legal entity, or account number didn’t exactly match the document.
Note: There can be exceptions to the legal entity name. The Doing Business As (DBA) name can be on the bank document instead of the legal entity name, provided we have official proof the DBA is directly connected to the legal entity. Furthermore, the presence (or absence) of an acronym denoting the nature of the business (e.g “LLC” or “PTY LTD '') on either the input or the document won’t render the check invalid. Straightforward abbreviations can also be accepted (e.g: “Mike” for “Michael”)
