How do I export payroll information from Paychex?


Church360° Ledger has the capability to import payroll information from the Paychex online website. It is important to note that payroll details and all other payroll processing is performed in Paychex.

Once the checks are created in Paychex, they can be exported to a TXT file. Then, that file can be imported into Church360° Ledger. After the file is imported, Church360° Ledger will automatically update your account balances by creating a matching payroll transaction for each employee.

You will need the General Ledger module of Paychex Flex in order to export out Payroll files. Please consult with your Paychex representative to get this set up. If you don't have a Paychex representative, you can contact their support line at 833-299-0168
