Payroll Downloads

We have tested different approaches for submitting pension contribution. Downloading contributions from your payroll system and submitting them to us electronically has proven to be the approach that is most efficient and least prone to error and delay, for both you and us. We work with a number of payroll providers with the result that your payroll department can easily use this facility.

We are able to facilitate payroll download files from the following providers:

Ardbrook

Ardbrook support

By using this payroll download facility manual intervention is completely eliminated. There are very obvious benefits, especially the assurance of 100% accuracy as the pension contribution information is downloaded directly from your payroll system and is uploaded directly onto our business systems in Irish Life. Another important benefit is that the payroll download development helps employers to meet their compliance obligations in relation to the '21 day rule' (Pensions Amendment Act).

The requirement is that all contributions deducted from employees and due from employers must be paid to the pension scheme within 21 days of the end of the month in which they were deducted or became due. It is your responsibility to ensure that you arrange for the transmission of this report and payment of contributions within the prescribed timeframe.
