How do I set a future payment date?

With NEST, you can always control what and when you pay. If you’re using Direct Debit you’ll be able to set a date in the future to pay your contributions. Selecting a payment date in the future will allow you to schedule your payments and submit your contribution schedule in one go.

This option will only be available if the original payment due date of the contribution schedule is not within five working days from the present day.

Setting a future payment date:

Once you’ve validated all the members in the contribution schedule, click ‘Submit schedule’. You’ll see two options:

  • Pay now
  • Pay later

Select ‘Pay later’ and click ‘Confirm’. On the next screen you’ll see a calendar to select a date. You’ll also be able to see the last date until when you can select a future payment date under the section Select a date.

You can select any date between three working days from the present day and the payment due date of the schedule.

Once you’ve selected the future payment date, click ‘Confirm’.

On the contribution schedule page you’ll see a dot below Future payment date for the submitted schedule. This indicates that a future payment date has been set.

Editing a future payment date:

You’ll be able to change the future payment date you’ve originally selected if it is not within three working days from the present day.

To edit a future payment date, click ‘Edit/Pay’ arrow next to the schedule you wish to change the date for and then click ‘Edit’.

You’ll be able to see the last date until when you can select a future payment date.

You’ll need to select the new date from the calendar. Once you’ve selected the date, click ‘Confirm’.

NEST will collect the payment on the new payment date that you’ve selected.

You can also cancel the future payment date. To do this click ‘Edit/Pay’ arrow for the schedule and then click ‘Cancel’.

On the next screen click ‘Confirm’. You’ll see a confirmation message as shown below.
