Request Presentation Date is a web service that allows a remote system to confirm the presentation date for a given Action date and service instruction.

The remote system submits the Action date on which the payment or debit is to be applied to the beneficiary or debtor, and the service returns the last possible date on which the batch needs to be authorised to meet the required Action date.

This service relates to the Debit order and Creditor payments services only (Salary and Creditor batches have the same cut-off times).

Alternatively, Request Action Date is a web service that allows a remote system to confirm the next available action date for a given service instruction.
