Step-by-step guide.

Join, start saving, or launch a new savings scheme

If you're a Boom Community Bank member working for one of our partner organisations, you could start saving as soon as your next payday. If you're not a Boom member, you'll need to join before you can start saving. You can find the list of employer partners below.

Join Boom Community Bank >

Start saving >

If your employer doesn't offer the scheme, request a partnership with Boom Community Bank. We will contact your employer to provide information about the payroll savings scheme and aim to make it available to your and your colleagues.

If you represent an organisation that wants to introduce the scheme, contact Boom Community Bank. Signing up new employers is a quick process and a simple services agreement will be exchanged.

More about joining

We set out to make Money Box light work for employers to facilitate. It starts and can be managed from the Money Box employee and employer hubs.

Anyone wanting to join the scheme to save must register for free as a Boom Community Bank member. We will provide them with a Boom account to receive their savings contributions.

Download our app and follow the steps to become a new member, then return to Money Box Employee Hub to initiate savings.

After payroll deductions begin,  employees can return to the Employee Hub anytime to change or stop their savings deductions.

Employers can return to the secure Employer Hub to contact us and administrate the scheme.

Collecting authorisations and controlling savings

Employees choose and control how much they want to save. By completing the form in the Employer Hub, they authorise their employer to deduct their chosen amount of savings from their pay and send it to Boom Community Bank every pay cycle. When signed electronically, the form becomes a Payment Deduction Authorisation.

A Deductions Register is updated to include every colleague's payroll deduction that the employer should make within the current pay cycle. The register is shared securely between Boom Community Bank and the Employer.

Boom Community Bank retains the Completed Payroll Deduction Authorisations and may be shared with the employer as proof of an employee's enrolment in the scheme; however, the employer is never informed as to the purpose of the deductions, enabling loans to be repaid in confidence.

Processing Employee salary deductions

Each pay cycle, Boom Community Bank sends the employer or payroll administrator an updated register listing all the individual staff deductions it should make in the approaching pay run. The employer transfers the net total of all deductions to the Community Bank in a single transfer, accompanied by remittance advice uploaded via the Money Box Employer Hub.

Lodging Employee deposits and payments

Once the employer or payroll administrator has made a bulk deposit of the net amount of all employee deductions, it updates the register with any amendments. It sends it to Boom Community Bank by uploading it to the Employer Hub. Boom Community Bank reconciles the payment and distributes the funds into the participating employees' accounts.
