How do I generate return data?

  1. Go to: Payroll > Payroll Tools > Payroll Reports > Teachers Pension Monthly Contributions Reconciliation. The Teachers Pension Monthly Contributions Reconciliation window appears.
  2. Select the desired Employer from the drop down list.
  3. Select the desired month in which the Return Period Ends from the drop down list.
  4. Click the Generate Return Data button. This generates the return's data and also identifies which data is missing.
  5. When satisfied with the data, click the Generate MCR File button. The .csv file is created and is ready to be uploaded to the Teachers' Pensions website.


Before you send the .csv file to HMRC, you can check for any issues by re-importing the file into the MCR Template. For more information about the MCR Template, see the Teacher's Pension website.
