Pay employees using Bank ABA File
A Bank ABA file is a file that is used by all major Australian financial institutions to specify payments to be made from one bank account to one or more bank accounts.
Once you have your ABA file, it is usually a simple matter of uploading it to your business internet banking portal and authorising the payments.
Setting up your business to generate a Bank ABA File
Go to Setup < Organisation < Payment Details < enter (if you are unable to add these fields please contact our Support Team and they will enter them for you).
Direct Entry User* and
Direct Entry Number*
You will need to contact your bank to get the Direct Entry User and Direct Entry Number.
* User - This is the name of the user or business that is creating the ABA file. The most common value is the business name, however, the bank will have a specific format for the name and this should be input exactly as provided by the bank (including using upper and lower case letters and/or spaces).
* Number - This is a 6 digit number provided by your bank. If you are not sure what this number is, you will need to contact your bank.
Some financial institutions require the file to be 'self-balanced'. You will have to check with your financial institution if you need to select this option, which is catered for in our system.
To make the Bank ABA File 'self-balanced'
Go to Setup < Organisation < tick Create a Self-balanced File < then save.
You will now be able to generate a Bank ABA File. After you have completed Step 4. Confirm, you will be able to download 'bankfile.aba'
