‘Menus’ – ‘Setup’ – ‘Bank Accounts’

Up to 10 bank accounts can be added to Moneypenny and reconciled from the Setup > Bank Accounts menu item as shown below.

Setup / Modify Bank Accounts

A window with 10 tabs will appear. Each tab relates to a separate bank account that can be made available for payments and reconciliation, and has a variety of details you can setup.


Unused bank accounts will show ‘Inactive’ until the ‘Inactive’ field on the tab has been deselected.

You can change:

  • Bank Addressing details – These can be filled in for your reference.
  • Ledger Acct No – This should be set to a bank account in your Chart of Accounts balance sheet.
  • BSB No / Account No – Your bank accounts Account Number and BSB/Sort Code. Many banks require this to be present on Bank Upload files for validation.
  • Currency – Enables entries for the selected currency to be paid against this bank account.
  • Sep Direct Deposit – If this is enabled, each payment in a single payment run will be given a unique reference number on the bank reconciliation rather than being grouped together.
  • Bank User ID – Some banks use this as identification who is uploading or as a unique reference. e.g. For Westpac bank  the bank user ID or the Direct Entry User ID must be 000000 (or your Direct Entry User ID as per letter from Westpac).

New Zealand

If you experience problems when uploading to the ASB bank in NZ using the ASB format, use the BNZ format.  When you import it into the ASB online banking make sure that you choose BNZ from a drop-down menu, called “Import other file” so it knows it’s not a normal ASB format.

HSBC requires New Zealand BPP format.
