(5 or more locations)

An EFT Authorization Form (EFT Form) must be submitted during the application process. A separate EFT Form must be filed for each bank account the Retailer uses. By law, Retailers are required to maintain an EFT account that is kept separate from all other Retailer bank accounts.

In the event a Retailer wants to change bank accounts or add locations, the EFT Forms on record with the SCEL must be changed/updated.

If a Retailer uses the same bank account for multiple locations, only one EFT Form must be filed with the SCEL for that single bank account. However, the EFT form must include a separate attachment for each location that will use the single bank account.

A download of the EFT Form can be found at:
