Why choose DBS Payroll Service?

  • Improve your cash flow and ensure your employees are paid quickly and on time with our automated transaction payroll system
  • Benefit from added convenience with cut-off times that are later than most banks. Our cut-off time is 3.30pm on working days
  • Monitor your account balance with our daily transaction reports and simplified account consolidation process
  • Create multiple transactions in one file with our easy-to-use payment system for added convenience
  • Protect against fraud with our safe and secure data validation and encryption features


I am currently using another bank for payroll service and I import my payment files into their Internet banking platform. Will the system change if I switch to DBS?

The formats for payment files used by IDEAL™ are supported by most payroll and account payables systems used by other banks, so it is unlikely there will be any changes in the system if you switch to DBS.

If I realise there’s an error in my payroll instructions after I have submitted them to the bank, can I amend the payment?

For security reasons, DBS does not allow you to make amendments to payment instructions once they have been filed and submitted. However, you can stop the payment from being made and make alternative arrangements to pay your employee.

Is there a fee for using Payroll Service?

Yes, please refer to our pricing guide.
