Why should I make payments via GIRO?

GIRO offers a secure and convenient way to pay your employees. You can save time and money by removing the need to carry large amounts of cash or issuing cheques on payday. We also offer preferential benefits such as extended cut-off times when you pay to DBS or POSB account holders.

Will DBS generate a transaction advice?

Yes, DBS does provide this add-on service. Once a GIRO payment is successfully processed, the receiving party will be sent a transaction advice by email, mail, registered mail, overseas mail or courier.

I currently use another bank for GIRO payment and import my file into their Internet banking platform. Will system changes be required if I switch to DBS?

The file formats used by IDEAL™ are supported by most account payables packages, so it is unlikely system changes will be required.

If I realise there’s an error in my payroll instructions after I've 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. However, you can stop the payment from being made and make alternative arrangements with your beneficiary or submit a new file containing the correct information.
