Uploading DBS Bank File

This is an official slideshare guide on how to upload your DBS Bank File for your payroll.


Let’s first recap what a Payroll Bank File is.

A Payroll Bank File is a .txt file that may be named differently for different payroll platforms.  For Talenox, when the Bank File is processed, it will be named like this: bank_file14092963432.txt.


You may be thinking why a Payroll Bank File is needed. To put it simply,

 Imagine keying in entries for 30 or more employees into the bank’s portal.  That sounds tedious, doesn’t it? It gets worse when companies have 100 – 1000 employees, or more. If you’re the person keying in these data, we guarantee you – the time’s really not worth it.


At Talenox, we are people-focused. We aim to make lives easier. Hence, we created a smart system to automatically process your Payroll Bank Files, so that you can upload just one file, and that’s it.  Here are the steps to upload the Payroll Bank File to DBS.

Congratulations, you’ve now mastered how to upload your DBS bank file. There may have been a couple more steps than the usual corporate banking platforms, but that’s because of DBS’s commitment to better payment security.

Note: In the event where you cannot find find the “File Transfer” section under “Payments” for you to “Upload Profiles”, it means that you have not applied for that feature when you set up DBS IDEAL corporate account initially.  To apply for the “File Transfer” feature, please follow these steps closely:

  1. Visit DBS Corporate Banking page.
  2. Go to the middle portion of the page and locate Frequently Used Forms section on the right.
  3. Then, click on the IDEAL 3.0 Maintenance Form.
  4. Fill up section 2 on 3rd Page.  Tick “Access this service” for section 2b.  Fill up the Authoriser’s name, date, and sign accordingly.
  5. Finally, go to a DBS branch and get the form processed by one of the bankers.


We would recommend the branch at Marina Bay Financial Centre (MBFC) or the one at Suntec City, as the queues are much shorter there.
