Remitted contributions

Remitted contributions don’t match your Payroll Report? We’ve got your back

Last month we highlighted the importance of balancing your remitted contributions and salary to the data on the Payroll Report. We know it’s easier said than done. That’s why there’s a form called Balancing Help on the secured Employer section of our website. Balancing Help is a PDF form that includes total remittances to date and provides a guideline for balancing remitted funds to payroll data.

Here’s how to access the form:

  1. Log on to the secured Employer section of the plan website with your username and password.
  2. Click E-Remittance under the Financial Reporting section of the Resources box.
  3. Click Balancing Help to download the PDF.

If you still have questions about the balancing process contact the plan finance branch at fin@pensionsbc.ca.
