A client with operating subsidiaries may receive:
- A separate transmission for each subsidiary covering the NOC data file. For example, a client with ten subsidiaries, requiring payment information changes by transmission or ACH RBC Express, each subsidiary would receive a NOC transmission covering these changes.
Alternatively, the client may receive a combined transmission for all subsidiaries or a selected subsidiary covering the NOC data file. For example, a client with ten subsidiaries, requiring payment information changes by transmission or ACH RBC Express would receive one transmission and a header, details of NOC's records and a trailer for each subsidiary.
