After printing payroll checks and direct deposit stubs, create an ACH file for your direct deposit employees.
The ACH (Automated Clearinghouse) Transmission File is the file your bank uses to electronically deposit payroll checks in the appropriate bank accounts of the various banks used by your employees. Create the ACH file after generating payroll checks and direct deposit stubs.
If you have set up an account with Vanco Payment Solutions, you can upload your ACH files to them for processing. When you create an ACH file to upload to Vanco, do not select the Balanced File option, and rename the file in this format: clientid.dd. For example, if your client ID is ES12345, the file name would be ES12345.dd.
Before sending your first ACH file, your bank may require you to send a prenotification file to verify that payroll data is being transmitted correctly. Check with your banking institution for specific transmission requirements.
The ACH file only includes information for employees participating in direct deposit. If additional employees display, right-click within the grid, then select ACH Entries.
