[ACCORDION] What if the cut-off date has already passed?
If the cut-off date for the current payroll cycle has passed, your changes will go into effect from the following cycle.
You will see on the platform the payroll cycle dates from which your changes will go into effect.
[ACCORDION] Can I enter a specific numerical amount into an account instead of a percentage?
No, you can only distribute your salary between multiple accounts using percentages.
[ACCORDION] What is the minimum percentage amount I can enter?
The minimum amount is 1% for an account. Decimals are not allowed.
[ACCORDION] Will my client know how I distribute my salary?
No. Your client will not know if your salary is deposited into one account or split among multiple bank accounts.
[ACCORDION] Can I add a bank account from a different country than where I work?
Yes, it is possible to add an international account that is from a bank in a different country than your contract employment country.
But please note, using an international account may result in unknown delays in receiving your salary, foreign exchange rates, and third party processing fees that we can not control or predict.
You must manually confirm that you are aware of this possibility and wish to continue using an international account.
