What is an ACH batch?

An automated clearing house (ACH) batch is a group of records considered a single unit for the purpose of data processing. Businesses will create batches to send ACH transactions into the ACH network. 
The batch will have the required information to send the ACH transactions. Each batch will contain the effective date, the originating business name, dollar amounts, participant names, account numbers and routing numbers.
