What information do I need to save an employee to my list?

If you want to save your employee's details in the payroll employee list you will need the following information:

  • Reference/salary number: this can be a maximum of 20 characters long, and is used for easy identification when making payments. If you do not use a reference or salary number you can enter the employee's name.
  • Account details: including the BSB number (six digit number) and an account number.
  • Account name: the account name of the employee's account to be credited.
Why should I save the employee details in the Payroll payment - employee list?

If you choose to save the employee, their details will be stored in your payroll employee list. 

  • This means that they will appear in the "To" drop down list in future so if you need to transfer money to their account again you can simply select them from the list and their details will be filled automatically.
What if the employee's details change?

If the employee's bank details change in future, you can easily Edit a payroll employee via the "Profile" menu.

  • You can update the BSB number (financial institution number), account number, account name, employee salary/reference number.
  • Once you edit the employee's details it will be updated immediately within the same ANZ Internet Banking session.
Can I delete an employee from the payroll employee list?

Yes. You can delete the payee from the payroll employee list any time.

  • Go to the "Profile" menu.
  • Select "My Payroll Employee list".
  • Select the employee, using the radio button under the "Select" column.
  • Select the "Immediately delete employee" link.

Please note that you cannot delete an employee if there is a future or recurring payment scheduled for that person.

  • You must first cancel the pending future or recurring payments.

If you wish to delete a future dated or recurring payment, the request must be lodged with ANZ Internet Banking prior to 11.59pm Melbourne time on the day prior to the payment date.

Does my employee need to have an ANZ account?

No. The employee need not have an ANZ account.

  • The payroll payments function within ANZ Internet Banking will allow you to transfer funds from your ANZ account to an account with any Australian financial institution (bank, building society, credit union, etc).
  • All you need is the BSB number, account number and account name of the employee.
