Payroll Direct Deposit

When it comes to payroll processing, we can save your company money and time.

Electronic Funds Transfer services simplify your payroll procedure by automatically depositing your employees’ wages directly into their bank accounts at the bank of their choice.

Simply provide us with a National Automated Clearing House Association (NACHA) file (or create one using our Online Cash Management system). The payroll data is then forwarded through the Automated Clearing House (ACH) by Bank of Stockton to your employees’ banks. Your employees need to pre-authorize these automatic payroll entries to their bank accounts.

Direct Deposit is entirely automatic and electronic; it saves your business the time
and expense of writing and reconciling paper checks.

Benefits to Your Business:

  • Eliminates the time and expense your company spends preparing and reconciling checks
  • Eliminates the work time lost when employees step out to cash or deposit their paychecks
  • Reduces the cost of check and payroll forms
  • Prevents lost or stolen checks

Benefits to Your Employees:

  • With Direct Payroll Deposit to your employees’ accounts, each employee can receive no-service charge checking at Bank of Stockton
  • Employees have access to their funds the morning of payday, without any time lag or trip to the bank
  • In an interest-bearing account, their funds begin to earn interest sooner
  • Employees don’t worry about lost or late paychecks
  • Employees still receive a detailed payroll stub every payday
  • Employees will never need to spend their valuable time – or yours – cashing or depositing paychecks

Each business must qualify for the credit required to be an ACH originator.
