Direct Credit Emergency Backup

  • Direct credit schedules are produced from the current unfiled pays.
  • It is essential you produce either your printed direct credit schedule, or the file to be transmitted to your bank, prior to filing the current pays.
  • The information cannot be retrieved once you have filed your regular payroll.
  • If you transmit your direct credits electronically, either on disk or using a desktop banking system, it is also a good idea to have a printed schedule in case anything goes wrong with the electronic transfer.
  • It is also a good idea to not file your regular payroll until you know your bank has correctly processed the direct credits. We have heard cases where clients sent a bank a disk file and printout. The disk was faulty, and the bank refused to process the printed schedule.
  • Because it is so important to produce these reports prior to filing your regular pay, Ace Payroll automatically makes a spare copy of both the printed and electronic schedules when you file your regular pay.

  • Having viewed the file to verify it is correct, click the Copy Backup button to place the copy of the previous period's direct credit file, in the location of the file for the current period. This can then be picked up by your internet or desktop banking software.
