View, download and merge ABA files

Download ABA files for uploading to your bank

Once payslips have been generated in Pay, an ABA file is automatically generated. You can download this file for uploading to your bank.

You can also generate a ABA again, for example if an employee updated their bank account details after you already processed their pay (and the payment returned from the bank).

View and download

To view and download the ABA file:

  1. Navigate to Payroll > Pay, Payslips tab and click ABA History. This will display all files.ABA_History.png
  2. You can filter your ABA files according to Period Ending & Office Code if needed.
  3. To download the ABA into an importable format for your online banking institution click Actions, Download. Please note that it will take a couple of minutes for the ABA file to download.Download_ABA.png
  4. Please note: If you have edited any payslips you will be required to regenerate the ABA. Simply select the week ending and click Generate ABA. The new ABA will now contain the latest changes.Regenerate_ABA.png
