The day after your payroll is processed, we transfer the total amount needed for payroll from your church’s bank account into our dedicated payroll clearing account.

We can then distribute the payroll into your employees’ bank accounts (i.e. initiate payroll on Monday for distribution to employees on Friday or initiate payroll on Tuesday for distribution to employees on Monday).
