Accountants: Can I set up Bill Pay for my clients?

No. The owner of the bank account and the business must set up the Bill Pay feature. Only Master and Company admins will have access to use this feature. Accountant users will not be able to use the Bill Pay feature for their clients.

What if I am the Accountant and the Master Admin on a client's account?

Due to the dual role of the accountant user in this situation, the accountant user takes priority and will not be able to set up or use the Bill Pay feature for their client's account. If the setup is attempted, it will cause complications for those users who attempt to set up the feature in their own Firm account. If the owner of the company is a Company Admin, they are able to setup and use this feature.
