How do I generate GIRO file for submission?

Modified on Wed, 6 Mar at 2:36 PM

1. Go to Manage Company found on the left sidebar.


2. Navigate to Payroll tab.


3. Scroll down until you see GIRO File section.

4. Input the Batch No. then click on Generate GIRO file to download the file for submission.

[By default, Batch No. will be set to 01. If generating multiple GIRO files in a day, simply update the Batch No. to 02, 03, 04 and so forth]

Important Notes:

  • The value date is the date when the salary payments are effected by the bank

  • Change the Batch No. accordingly (from 01, 02, 03, etc) before generating the file if you are submitting more than 1 file a day. This is necessary for the banks to identify the different files that you have submitted

  • Do not rename the generated Giro File. Renaming the file Giro File may lead to errors when uploading to the bank portals.

  • To better understand which file is better for you, kindly refer to:

    a. Bank File (FAST): Allows you to transfer funds between banks instantly. FAST payment is charged a more expensive rate compared to GIRO. FAST will show the breakdown of all employees' salaries in the bank statement and it might be a potential confidentiality issue.

    b. Bank File (GIRO): Most likely the preferred option because it shows 1 transaction line only in the bank statement for the whole batch payment.
