Manage contributions

What do I need to do after I’ve completed a contribution schedule?

Once you’ve completed your contribution schedule and saved it, you’ll need to make sure all of the members you need to pay contributions for are validated and any errors in the schedule have been resolved.

Each individual contribution schedule will need to move to the Paid schedules section on or by your payment due date to make sure you’re complying with your legal duties and to avoid any late payments. We recommend you to regularly check your unpaid schedules to make sure that any errors are resolved. Please make sure you’re paying contributions to NEST before the payment due date shown at the top of your contribution schedule in your online NEST account.

The payment due date is the date by which contributions need to clear in our bank account.

We suggest making payment at least five working days before the payment due date to allow enough time for processing. Please see How can I make sure my payment reaches you on time? for more information.

For more information about member statuses in the contribution schedule and what they mean please see What does each member status in a contribution schedule mean?
