Given that most companies work on a 30 day pay cycle, and including email
transport times (at least a week from Sydney to Melb), and processing,
you're cutting it extremely short. 

I'd hazard a guess that most companies on their standard pay method would
not have the 'invoice' (ie, pay or lose it) returned to Melbourne IT (who
will then be delayed in processing, what was it, 12,000 payments at once??
-- read $1.5 MILLION!) by the time the payment is due.

I'd suggest Melbourne IT tread _extremely_ carefully when pressing ye old
delete key on the zone files.


PS: The $25.00 'processing fee' is just plain bullshit.
