Can I Use Telpay To Pay Employee Expenses/Bonuses?

Telpay for Business has the ability to pay employee expenses or employee bonuses as a funds transfer.  Using the funds transfer payment option allows you to send money (as a bill payment) to any individual.  In order to send a funds transfer, banking information is required and the payment is sent electronically.

The funding timeline for a funds transfer (such as an employee expense or employee bonus) is the same as any other payable.  You can view our payables funding options here
