ACB enables the user to export a bank payroll file that can be imported into your company banking to pay your employees’ salaries/wages directly. The nett pay amount will be exported; there is no option to export a ‘selected’ amount.

We currently cater to the following ACB layouts in Payroll:

  • ABSA Barclays.Net

  • ABSA Business Integrator Online

  • Capitec

  • FNB Online Enterprise

  • Nedbank (Nedbank)

  • Standard Bank Business Online
