Prior to uploading it is essential to ensure your payroll data is in the right format. Failure to do so could significantly increase the risk of errors later in the process.
It is your responsibility to make sure that your payroll data is uploaded in the correct format. Please use our external file upload validation tool to test that your payroll file format is correct.
Please note your payroll data needs to be imported for each pay period. Below are the guides that will take you through the process of uploading your payroll file:
- Instructions for uploading payroll data to your employer portal
- If you use Sage 50 payroll software see the Sage Roadmap to NOW: Pensions for uploading your payroll file
- If you use Pegasus payroll software see the Pegasus step by step help centre article for uploading your payroll file
- If you use Moneysoft payroll software see the guide for uploading your file
If you have already tried to upload your payroll file and are experiencing issues, you can test your file using our file upload validation tool. This tool will identify any formatting issues with your payroll file and tell you how to correct them. Please note that you will only be able to test your payroll file if you are using a Generic Input File, Generic Input File (headerless) or Generic Jericho Input File.
