How do I get direct deposit started for employee T&E reimbursements? My bank doesn't seem to have heard of this, and wants me to do them one at a time (much like a wire). The bank processes payroll direct deposit; I want this to work the same way.


We are not sure we understand the situation. It is very surprising that your bank would not understand ACH direct deposit. If you have payroll direct deposit, then the bank clearly knows how it works—perhaps you need to speak to a different person there. Use payroll as an example—you want the same thing, only instead of payroll, it’s for reimbursements! Refer them to NACHA?

We might be misunderstanding something here, but if the bank handles your direct deposit for payroll, it certainly should be able to handle direct deposit for T&E reimbursements.
