Automate Distribution of Funds to Employees

Posted on Wednesday, 15th Apr '20

We like automation. It saves so much time. We know you make a lot of use of the automated payroll features we offer.

But it’s always been missing one piece of the jigsaw: someone has to submit the BACS file to the bank for processing.

We have the option to automatically send an email to someone to give them payment details but it still required someone to save the BACS file, log in to online banking, and upload the file.

Automated Payments

Those of you with an eagle eye might have spotted these services become available in our integrations over the past few weeks. We wanted to make sure they were bedded in and worked equally as well whether you were paying ten people or ten thousand people before we started shouting about it!

There are two providers available, but the functionality from our side is the same for both.

You connect your account and enable the automation setting to send payments when a payrun is finalised (regardless of whether the payrun is closed manually or by automation).

You can choose whether to include payments to employees, HMRC and pension providers.

If you want more control over the timing then you can choose not to automate and instead click a button on the Required Payments report to make the payment

There is a difference in how each of the two currently supported providers work and how they charge.
You’re best to get in touch with them directly to find out more about their specific offering.
