To set up a bank feed for a Commonwealth Bank account:

Your AccountRight company file doesn't need to be online to set up bank feeds, but you'll need an internet connection.

Bank feeds can't be set up for CBA personal credit card accounts. Which CBA accounts are supported?

There are two parts to setting up a bank feed:

1. Apply

Start the application process in AccountRight, then finish via NetBank (the Commonwealth Bank's online banking). Alternatively, you can submit an application form.

>

2. Link

Once your bank feed application is approved, choose the AccountRight account the bank feed applies to.

1. Apply for a bank feed

Applying online via NetBank is the quickest way to get up and running. Otherwise you can complete an application form.

To apply via NetBank

The quickest way to apply for a bank feed is to start the process in AccountRight, then finish it via NetBank, the Commonwealth Bank's online banking.

You won't be able to apply via NetBank if:

  • you don't have access to NetBank - speak to the Commonwealth Bank about getting set up.
  • you use Commonwealth Bank CommBiz
  • there's more than one signatory on your account, or
  • you've chosen to "mask" your account numbers in NetBank (so they display as XXX XXX) and you don't want to turn this off.

If you can't apply via NetBank, use an application form instead. See the next task for instructions.
