When you schedule a payment via Bill.com, the earliest process date you can select is the next banking day. Weekends and holidays do not count in the banking world; if the day you select is a bank holiday or weekend day, the system will automatically push the process date to the next available banking day.
The holidays listed below are all recognized as banking holidays by the Federal Reserve System, which means that on these days of the year banks are closed and not operating in their normal capacity. We cannot process ePayments (ACH), checks and international payments on bank holidays.
- New Year’s Day
- Martin Luther King Jr. Day
- President’s Day
- Memorial Day
- Independence Day
- Labor Day
- Columbus Day
- Veterans’ Day
- Thanksgiving Day
- Christmas Day
Keep an eye out for notifications of bank holidays while working in your Bill.com account so you can consider weekends and holidays when scheduling payments.
Do payments clear on holidays and weekends?
ePayments do not clear on bank holidays and weekends. If you schedule your payment on a weekend or bank holiday, we delay processing until the next business day.
If a weekend or bank holiday falls within the regular processing time for a payment, the payment will take an extra day to process, since banks do not operate on those days. That extra day will be reflected in the "Arrives By" Date.
If a bank holiday falls on a weekday
If you schedule a payment on Christmas Day that falls on Wednesday, it won’t actually process until Thursday, the next business day.
If a bank holiday falls on a weekend
If a bank holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday, it could affect your payment process date. For example, if a bank holiday falls on a Saturday, it is usually observed on the Friday before.
