How do I set up a Split Rule?



Split Rule

Define a percentage of any inbound payment to be split out and sent to a different destination (a beneficiary that's already set up). You can add multiple destinations and splits.

Eg: Each time a payment arrives, send 2% to Beneficiary A, and 3% to Beneficiary B. The remainder will stay in the account.

The Payment Rules setup screens are accessed by navigating to any account, and selecting 'Account Options' – choose 'Rules on this Account' from the menu displayed.

  1. From the 'Rules on this Account' screen, select 'Create a rule for this Account'
  2. Select 'Split' from the rule type options displayed
  3. Select 'Create'
  4. On the form displayed, give your Rule a meaningful name that will help identify it
  5. In the 'Split destination' field, select or enter the Beneficiary you wish the split funds to be sent to – this will need to be a Beneficiary you have already set up.
  6. Enter the percentage split you want to be sent to the selected Beneficiary each time a payment comes in to the Account
  7. Select 'Create'
  8. The Rule summary can be viewed in the 'Rules on this account' screen

Note: You can add more than one Split destination and percentage if you need to – each payment that is paid in can be split into defined percentages and sent to multiple destinations. Just select 'Add another split destination' and complete the fields as above.
