In Collection-Master version 9.1E.004, released on Wednesday, November 11, 2020, as well as in 9.1E.005 (a special release for firms doing Citibank work) released on Friday, November 13, 2020, we inadvertently included the enhanced Discover Inbound Plus programming. Discover originally asked for the change to the export file in June, as they intend to test the changes with two pilot firms prior to moving ahead with all firms. That testing with the pilot firms is happening soon. The rest of the firms should continue to report the Inbound Plus File as usual. If you are running 9.1E.004 or 9.1005, [...]

Change to Interest Calculation in Collection-Master

By |2020-10-29T16:13:56-04:00October 28th, 2020|collection- master, vForum|0 Comments

The Direct Payment interest calculation will be changing in Collection-Master version 9.1E.002. This change only affects firms that have Collection-Master configured to calculate interest on the cost bucket portion of the consumer balance. This specifically pertains to Direct Payments with funds applied to cost recovered in the aforementioned configuration. Currently, for Direct Payments applied with a previous payment date, interest is credited based on Principal Collected but not costs (Note: This includes Contract & Legal Fees). This is only an issue if costs were set to accrue interest. This means if costs are accruing interest and being recovered via [...]

Interest Pause in Collection-Master – What You Need to Know (Revised)

By |2020-09-04T14:22:00-04:00September 4th, 2020|collection- master, Stimulus, Town Halls, vForum|0 Comments

Since the initial presentation, Vertican has found an issue in the instructions in the Collection-Master Interest Pause Town Hall. It suggested that when building the [3-2] report to pull N46 (Interest Due). However, STORED_INT is meant to be the Total Interest Accrued on the claim. This value then subtracts payments made to interest giving you the Total Interest Due. If interest was paid prior to [2-S-5] Interest Swap program, then the CM EDI instructions to re-activate interest will cause the interest to go negative. In the condition there were no payments to interest prior to the [2-S-5] Interest Swap [...]
