How do I setup the ACB Functionality for an employee?

Created on  | Last modified on  Highlight Matches


Sage Business Cloud Payroll - 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 for the following ACB layouts in Payroll:

  • ABSA Barclays.Net
  • ABSA Business Integrator Online
  • Capitec
  • FNB Online Enterprise
  • Nedbank (Nedbank)
  • Standard Bank Business Online

In order for you to include employees for the ACB run, you will need to update the ACB type of payment on the Employee Details screen.


TIP: Watch our video here.

From the Sage Business Cloud Payroll (SBCP) home screen:

  1. Click on Employee
  2. Click on Employee Details
  3. Scroll down to the Payment details section
  4. Use the drop-down box 'I pay this employee by' and select ACB
  5. Once you have selected this you will now need to supply the following information:
    1. Type of Account (compulsory field)
    2. Bank Name (compulsory field)
    3. Branch Code (compulsory field)
    4. Account Number (compulsory field)
