Pay your employees faster with our secure and convenient solution

Save time and money by paying your employees through DBS GIRO payroll each month. Simply submit your payment files through IDEAL™, our online banking platform, and we’ll process your payroll for you without the need to withdraw cash or issue cheques. And if your employees hold an account with DBS or POSB, you will enjoy a faster turnaround time.

  • Create multiple transactions in one file for greater convenience
  • Protect against fraud with our safe and secure hash total and encryption features


Why should I pay my employees 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.

I currently use another bank for GIRO payroll 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 payroll and 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 employee.
