Banks share two main types of files with us:
- Prior-day files, which are sent daily and reflect a snapshot of a bank accounts status, including transactions pending and posted to the account as well as the balance when the file is sent.
- Intraday files, which are sent regularly throughout the day.
Different banks offer BAI2 reporting at different frequencies, from every 15 minutes to every few hours. If you are getting intraday reports, they will appear in our dashboard as “available balance,” while the balance from the previous day will show as “prior day balance.” Note that not all banks support intraday reporting, but it is best to request both for your Modern Treasury set up.
