Hi Nat, welcome to the Reckon Community.
We've got step by step instructions on getting your company file prepared for Payday Filing and also how to export the Employment Information from your Reckon software below -

Preparing your company file for Payday Filing

Payday Filing Employment Information (EI)

There's also some detailed information on the IRD site here - Payday Filing Employer responsibilities

Hi Neil, thank you for this, ok this is where I was a little confused then, So if I have created the file and exported it to my own folder and it’s in CSV format should this be it then to upload? Because if so I tried this yesterday and it said the file is invalid? I would be greatful for any insight. Thank you

Hi Nat,

When you went to IRD Portal, did you follow the above instructions to go to payday filing section or to IR348 section? As uploading this file to IR348 section will fail.

Thanks
