Contacts - Validate Bank Account Numbers

Started by Glenis Te Tamaki in Feature Requests | Idea

Would Xero please add a facility whereby Bank Account Number is validated at time of entry into Contact Details.
When a Payment Batch is processed that has an incorrect Contact Bank Account, it can take some time to locate which Contact has the error.
Other accounting software validates the bank account number using the formats supplied by the NZ banks
Yes, I totally agree. It can be very time-consuming trying to identify the line with the Error message. Bank a/c number validation at time of input would be great.

Yes, could Xero please add a facility whereby Bank Account No. is validated at time of entry into Contact Details. This would be a great time saver.
