A client, which is a new employer, elected to postpone auto-enrolment by two months - i.e postpone for May and June 2019 and start AE from 1 July. I set up NEST for them and set up a workers group within NEST. However, when I set the group up I set it up for the first month of contributions being June and not July. NEST is now looking for payment for the period ending 30 June. But there were no contributions during this period.
I can't post zero contributions because there is not a 'postponement' reason when it asks for a reason why there are zero contributions. I don't want to delete the group as I doubt that this will simply stop the payment requests. If I set up a new group now, it will look for payment for August only and not July.
Any ideas what to do?
