Your employee list comprises of the payroll recipients you have saved to your ANZ Internet Banking. When making payroll payments you can select previously saved recipients from your employee list and avoid filling in their details each time.

Adding an employee to your list is easy.

How do I add a payroll employee?

  • Go to the "Payments" menu.
  • Select "Pay employees".
  • Select the "Update employee list" link.
  • Select "Add new employee" and follow the steps below.

Alternatively you can:

  • Go to either the "Settings" menu or the “Payments” menu.
  • Select "My Payroll Employee list".
  • Select "Add new employee" and follow the steps below.

Before adding an employee

Before you add an employee to your payroll employee list you must ensure that the employee is aware:

  • of ANZ's identity and contact information
  • that they are able to access the information ANZ holds about them
  • that their banking details are collected for transferring money directly into their account
  • that ANZ will not disclose their information to other organisations.

Remember that it is your responsibility to ensure the details provided by you are correct as we do not check that the details are correct.

Step 1 - Enter the employee details

Reference/Salary number: enter a description or salary number for the employee. The description can be a maximum of 20 characters and cannot include special characters (For example!@#$ %^*-).

The description will help you identify the employee for making future payments so make sure it is clear.

Employee name: this may be used by some financial institutions to correctly identify the account when making payments.

BSB number: this will be a 6 digit number. Do not include any spaces or dashes.

Account number: will be a maximum of 9 digits.

You must ensure this information is correct as errors in BSB or account numbers will result in unsuccessful payments or the wrong employee receiving funds.

Step 2 - Save the employee

If you are happy with the information click "Save details".

This will save the employee's information in your payroll employee list.

Next time you want to make a payroll payment to this person you can select them using the "To" drop down list.
