How do I update employee KiwiSaver details via the HR platform?

KiwiSaver is a voluntary savings scheme designed to help set up your employees for their retirement. Your employees can make regular contributions from their pay or deposit directly into their scheme provider. Employers need to check if new employees are eligible for automatic enrolment, enrol them if they are, and make KiwiSaver deductions and contributions.

The KiwiSaver details within the Employee File module allow you to edit an employee's KiwiSaver details and specify their enrolment option. When selecting the enrolment status, you can choose from a wide range of options, such as automatic enrolment, savings suspension, and Ineligibility.
