What is an ABA File and how do I upload it to my Internet Banking Provider?

Updated: Sep 26, 2019

What is an ABA File?

ABA files are used by Australian banks to identify payments being made from a single bank account to another or multiple accounts.

Generally, employers will pay employees through an ABA file that their payroll software automatically generates.

Once you've got your ABA file, all you normally need to do is upload it to your internet banking portal and authorise the payments.

To set up your ABA Files, you'll need to follow the steps within your payroll software. This will obviously be different depending on your software.

We haven't put in all the finer details in this blog as we want to just give you the important stuff but if you're interested in more information, have a look here.
