NB When saving the file, it must be saved as the file type CSV (Comma delimited).
The file should contain no titles or totals. If employees are paid weekly, then each week’s contributions should be shown (see example above).
This information should be extracted from your payroll software. Please refer to your payroll software guidance for information on how to do this.
Once extracted, the information should be arranged in the same column order as in the table above.
Group Life Assurance
If the company does not use Group Life Assurance, then leave Column H blank.
If your company does use Group Life Assurance, column H should have the Group Life Assurance Contribution Value for that employee within that Payment Reference Period.
