|A new setting that, when applied, removes the 'Loqate' bank details verification for employees at a specific Location|
Release date: June 15th 2023
- Enabled by Default? - No
- Set up by customer Admin? - Yes
- Enable via Support ticket? - No
- Affects configuration or data? - No
A new setting in the Location setup page that allows for the 'Loqate' bank details validator to be disabled for all employees at that Location.
Reason for the Change
Customers who use HR UK to manage their non-UK employee records are currently unable to enter the employee bank details if the Loqate bank details validation is enabled. This is due to the requirement for bank details to be validated before the page is saved.
All WFM UK customers who use Loqate bank detail validation.
More information about enabling and using Loqate can be found here.
Once released, a new option will be available within the Location set-up page to disable Loqate for all employees at that Location.
To do this:
- Go to HR > Company Admin > Locations and select the required Location
- Tick the box against Disable Loqate Bank Details Validation for this Location
- Save the changes.

- Go to Employee Info > Employment Details, scroll down to the 'Bank Details' section and select/add a Bank Account

Creating New Employees with Bank Details when Loqate is Disabled
When creating employees manually, there will be no option to validate bank details for any employee who is assigned to the Location for their main employment.
If employees are created via the UK Employee API, when sending the details to the HR module, the API will not validate the bank details sent when creating the employee.
