BMO Positive Pay File

Positive Pay files are downloaded from SkywardReports and then uploaded to BMO to prevent fraud.  Checks will not be paid by BMO unless they have appeared on a positive pay file.

  1. Open SkyReports
  2. Click BMO Positive Pay under Financial Management.
  3. Select AP, Payroll, Activity East/West, or Activity North/South.
  4. In the Check Date drop-down, select a date from a check run. (Note: This will only show check runs that have not already been downloaded from this report.  To download prior check runs a second time, contact IT.)
  5. The checks that will be included on the export file will appear on screen.  Click the Download Report link to download your file that will be uploaded to BMO.
