Employers can use their payroll software to send information with NEST web services, saving time and administration effort when meeting day-to-day auto enrolment duties.
Client information can also be sent to NEST manually online, via file upload or file transfer. Enrol workers, manage opt-outs, pay contributions and more using any of the following options.
- File upload using CSV
- File transfer using SFTP
You can log in to manually enter data. Outside of using web services, this is a quick and easy way for dealing with day-to-day tasks, particularly for employers with only a few enrolled workers or minimal changes to make. It’s also good for simpler tasks and can be used by the employer or anyone they’ve set up as their delegate.
You can upload CSV files of enrolments and contributions using our secure website. Once we’ve processed the data you’ll be able to download files from us to confirm that the data’s been processed and highlighting any issues that need to be resolved. You can also download information on any online opt-outs by workers.
You can use secure file transfer protocol (SFTP) to send us large CSV or XML files. As with file transfer, you can download files from us to confirm that the data’s been processed and highlighting any issues that need to be resolved. You can also download information on any online opt-outs by workers.
You can find simple guides to getting your files into the right format, ways of making contributions and much more in our help centre. You can also keep up to date with any changes we make to our system.
