Upload bank file to Singapore DBS Ideal

The bank file format for DBS is DBS Giro file. Downloading and uploading the bank file is very simple and easy. You can upload your bank file in your DBS Ideal account (DBS internet banking platform) to effect automated GIRO transfer of salaries to your employees.

In Swingvy, go to Payroll > Settings > Company details > Bank information and confirm that all information has been keyed in correctly. Whether your corporate/company bank account is with POSB or DBS, select DBS under this setting.

Ensure that your bank file format is selected as “GIRO”. This is a one-time setup.

The "Sender's Company ID" refers to the Company ID given by DBS to log in to DBS IDEALTM. All alphabet characters should be in capital letters.

Once you've set this, you can download your bank file after completing your Payrun (at Step 3).

Otherwise, if you've completed the payrun, you may download your bank file anytime through Payroll > Payroll history > select the month’s payrun you desire > download bank file.


The Value date of the bank file will be the downloaded date. This can be amended on DBS Ideal.
