Download a Prenote File

Download a prenote file, and submit it to your bank to make sure your bank and employees' account information is properly set up.

You must have accounting administrator permissions to perform this task. You must also own Realm Payroll, and direct deposit must be enabled to proceed.
A prenote file contains no amounts and is used as a test to make sure your bank and employees' account information is properly set up before a payroll run.
