I used to have some automatic withdrawals, but got rid of them. I just don't like other entities having that kind of access to my checking account, and sleep better being in complete control of when things get paid, and therefore the exact balance. The data has to be recorded anyway, and it's only a couple extra keystrokes to print a check. In some ways the automatic withdrawals complicate things rather than making them simpler. That's just my personal preference.
I do the books for other entities that use automatic withdrawals. It's not been a real problem, but they did not really save much time when all is said and done.
