How to export AE (automatic enrolment) pension data from your payroll software and upload that to your pension provider. 


Your specific payroll product and which pension provider you use will determine how you export the data, which file option to choose and what you would then do with the file once payroll has created it.

We have several guides to help you through the process, these are specific to your software and the pension provider. They cover the creating of the data AND the process of uploading this to the pension provider.

Use the links below to view the pension guide for your payroll product:

We currently cover the following pension providers:

  • NEST
  • Friends Life
  • Aviva
  • NOW: Pensions
  • People’s Pension
  • Scottish Widows
  • Standard Life

If your pension provider is not included in the list of output files within the payroll software, we may be able to create a bespoke format for you, click here for details.
