A pay period is the tax period in the payroll, e.g. 1 – 12 if for monthly payroll or 1 – 52 for weekly payroll.
You don’t need to create pay periods as these will automatically be created when you complete the first file import in to NOW: Pensions Gateway – our employer portal.
You can edit pay periods by clicking on “Edit schedule”.
IMPORTANT. Please make sure you double check that the Pay Period Start Date has the correct values which match the file that you are importing.
