BPAY Files

Follow

BPAY files can be used to make multiple BPAY payments on behalf of your employees via internet banking. You can set up more than one BPAY file then choose which file should be used for each pay schedule.

Employees are able to choose whether they want a portion of their net pay to go towards paying bills. To do this, they would set up the BPAY account via their Bank Accounts screen. Alternatively, you can do this on their behalf by following the instructions here.

Additionally, employee deductions can be set up to be paid via BPAY. Instructions on how to set this up can be found here

Setting up a BPAY file

To set up a BPAY file, from your dashboard screen go to Payroll Settings > Payment Files >  "BPAY File Settings" tab, then click on "Add" and select the appropriate financial institution. The steps used to complete the file setup varies depending on the financial institution chosen. Details are found below. 

Please note: At this stage, we only support BPAY file formats for the following financial institutions:

  • National Australia Bank (NAB);

Downloading a BPAY file from the Pay Run

The BPAY file will then download and you can then import this via online banking.   

If BPAY accounts have been set up for employees but the business has not set up their BPAY file format, the following warning will appear when you click on the "Download Payment File" button.
