Direct payments availability

This feature is being launched in Australia through June & July in 2020. Only businesses registered as Sole Traders and/or Private Companies with the Australian Business Registry will be eligible able to apply. 

Once you've set up electronic payments, you're ready to make electronic payments directly to your employees and suppliers. This allows you to pay employees and bills in batch payments using your debit or credit card directly from AccountRight. It's quick, easy and secure.

To identify a payment as being paid electronically

To identify a payment as being paid electronically

There are a few ways to identify that a payment you're making is to be paid electronically:

  • When you record a Spend Money or Pay Bills transaction, select the Electronic Payment option.
  • When you record a Pay Liabilities transaction, select the Group with Electronic Payments option.
  • If you've set up your employees to be paid electronically, when you process their pays they'll be identified as electronic payments.

Recorded electronic payments will be listed on the Prepare Electronic Payments window, ready to be processed. See the next task to learn how.
