Important: In order to use a Papdis file, you must ensure each employee record has an employee ID (payroll ID) as this is used to match the contributions to the employees. This number must be unique and not change.

You can keep track of all the pre-assessed files you have uploaded by clicking (Menu > Contribution and Payroll > Pre-assessed contributions) the table lists the summary of the files and allows you to view or download each file. You can see the result, file name and the date the file was uploaded.
