Some banks allow customers to upload a BACS file to input their employee bank payments. Shape has a few files that can be used.
If you need to upload a specific file, have a look within Company Setup for the Payment File section.
Selecting the correct file format
You should speak with your bank to see if your account allows you to upload a BACS csv file and which format they use.
There are currently the following file formats but new files are added as needed:
Simple - This is for if you don't need to upload the payment file and allows you to download the names and amounts for each employee into a simple payment CSV file.
BACS Standard 18 - Common format that some banks use.
BACS Standard 18 (No header) - A Lloyds file that is sometimes used.
Bankline - Used for Natwest and RBS
HSBC BACS Standard 18
Please contact us if you need another format.
