I have a client who has just taken on a new employee with a contract in place for a salary sacrifice pension. I am getting all confused over how to apply this on Brightpay and if NEST will even allow it.
What I have currently done in bright pay:
1.Added employee to payroll, enrolled them onto pension and selected relief at source (now I am thinking i should select no tax relief)
2. Added employees pay
3. Added a salary sacrifice of 5% and ticked deduct before PAYE and NIC, (but not ticked deduct before employee or employer pension.)
4. Set employee pension contribution to 0%
5. Set employer contribution to 8% (3% plus employee 5%)
6. On NEST I have set Contribution level to Custom (define my own amounts) and marked as 8% employers and 0% employee.
I am fairly certain I have gone wrong somewhere and any help would be very much appreciated.
