How to make contributions each pay cycle
To maintain your plan, a new payroll register file is required each payroll cycle. This is used to determine what amount gets debited from your account and allocated as an employee contribution.
Each payroll cycle:
- Run your payroll
- Download the payrollregister.xlsx file
- Populate and submit the file within 3 business days of running payroll
Note: This step is the same as step 5
Where applicable, give your payroll service provider the necessary instructions to implement this task.
If you need to pause employee contributions due to parental leave, sabbatical or other reasons, simply update their employment status in the employee.xlsx file and exclude the employee from the payroll register you send us each pay cycle, until they have returned to work.
