Internet Banking Overview

Internet banking is an electronic payment system that enables you to conduct a range of transactions using your bank's website. 

Internet banking in Agrimaster allows you to:

  • Import your statement (transaction history) from most major banks. This will simplify your monthly reconciliation process by matching many of your entries automatically
  • Pay bills. Given you have the BSB and account details for the biller, you can create an aba (Australian Banking Association – agreed format) file of transactions (bills to be paid) that can be exported from Agrimaster to your bank’s internet banking site. This process is known as creating an EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer) batch. This procedure will save you entering bills to be paid into your bank’s internet banking site and then having to enter the same bill again into your cashbook – double handling.
