How do I determine when to initiate my ACH Credit transaction?

How do I determine when to initiate my ACH Credit transaction?

You must originate your transaction at least one-two days prior to the payment due date. (Some banks take two days to process your transaction so please discuss with your bank.) You control the settlement date. You must obtain statement number and amount due from your broker/filer. You need to contact your broker/filer and decide how to best be notified of your payment obligations.
