Workday Finance: Wire Transfers

Updated: 02/08/2018

How will wire transfers be affected?

  • The method for requesting a wire transfer has changed significantly and it is no longer a separate form or process.
  • Wire transfers are now a payment method specifically for a particular payee (or supplier). In addition to not requiring a separate form, the Workday process couples the payment with the supplier (payee) records and does not require a separate journal entry or relieving of encumbrances.
  • For additional information on how to request a wire transfer, please reference the Create Supplier Invoice for ACH Payment and Wire Transfer Requests tip sheet.
