Sending Schedule
Send your ACH files to the bank days in advance, adhering to a sending schedule. Using the pay date of the payroll run determines the effective entry date on which each employee can expect to receive their direct deposit.
Balanced Files
A balanced file creates a line for the total amount of money withdrawn from the bank for direct deposit. Contact your bank to know if it requires this.
