Managing school resources & making payments

Making payments to staff and managing school resources can often be time consuming and complicated. We offer simple solutions to help with the ingoings and outgoings, which will help your school run more efficiently. We have a range of secure products that provide a number ways to collect money and make payments such as staff remuneration, supply payments, and one-off payments.

Pay staff

Your staff are the most important asset of your school, so it’s essential to make sure they’re paid on time. You can schedule payments for your regular payroll with Direct Credit, or automate salary payments with a payment template. This template allows your staff to create repeat payments to multiple accounts in minutes. Best of all, you can import payment data directly into CommBiz from your payroll management system.

Pay bills and suppliers

Documenting when you pay bills and suppliers is important for your tax and company records. CommBiz allows you to promptly process accounts through direct credit and BPAY, then download payment data straight to your accounting system.

Make urgent payments

To make urgent same-day online payments, we offer a priority payments service. You can make payments on the same day to any Australian financial institution if it falls within the daily cut-off time.

Keep payment information secure

CommBiz security features allow you to give approved staff secure access to account information. Here you can create individually customised permissions for each user determining which accounts they can access and what they can do with them. Every transaction can be tracked with a complete audit trail, which means you have absolute control.

Collect enrolment fees and other contributions

Through a range of secure payment options we can make it easier for parents to pay you and to collect other contributions. Choose from methods such as BPAY, direct debit, automated telephone payments or over the counter payments at any Commonwealth Bank. Funds can even be collected through your own branded web page. You can then monitor payments in real time with CommBiz, and download payment information directly to your accounting system.

Collect money at the school shop or canteen

At schools, parents can pay in person or over the phone through the convenience of EFTPOS, credit, debit or charge card. Another option is to use eVolve iShop to create your own online shop. It takes just a few days to set up, and you can use it to sell everything from uniforms to excursions, giving parents the freedom to shop outside school hours.
