Before adding an employee

Before you add a employee to your payroll employee list you must ensure that the employee is aware:

  • of ANZ's identity and contact information
  • that they are able to access the information ANZ holds about them
  • that their banking details are collected for transferring money directly into their account
  • that ANZ will not disclose their information to other organisations.

Remember that it is your responsibility to ensure the details provided by you are correct as we do not check that the details are correct.

Step 1 - Enter the employee details
  • Reference/Salary number: enter a description or salary number for the employee. The description can be a maximum of 20 characters and cannot include special characters (For example!@#$ %^*-).
  • The description will help you identify the employee for making future payments so make sure it is clear.
  • BSB number: this will be a 6 digit number. Do not include any spaces or dashes.
  • Account number: will be a maximum of 9 digits.
  • Account name: this may be used by some financial institution to correctly identify the account when making payments.

You must ensure this information is correct as errors in BSB or account numbers will result in unsuccessful payments or the wrong employee receiving funds.
