Kawartha Lakes moving to mandatory EFT payments August 31
May 22, 2015 - Beginning September 1, 2015 any business or individual billing the City of Kawartha Lakes will be paid through an Electronic Funds Transfer.
Currently about 60 percent of businesses and contractors that provide goods or services to the City receive payment through EFT. The City’s goal is to move all Accounts Payable processing to EFT later this summer.
“This will significantly reduce costs and the chances of fraud,” explained Treasurer Carolyn Daynes. “A lot of municipalities and other levels of government are moving in this direction so this is an opportunity to remain consistent and current with best financial practices.”
As the name implies EFTs enable municipalities, businesses and their customers to exchange money between each other electronically instead of via cheques or wire transfers.
