  • Updated


When joining Talexio not from the beginning of the year, part of the onboarding process is to upload the FS3 data of employees related to the payroll data that has already been issued for the current year. The reason for this is to factor in the tax that was already paid in the current year, in order for the tax calculation on upcoming payrolls on Talexio, to be adjusted. Uploading this data will also result in all the information to show on the relevant employee's FS3 at the end of the year.

Manual Updates

To add the employee FS3 data manually, go to the employee Details section and scroll down. In the case where the company has moved to Talexio mid-year, you will need to fill out the section "Income from this company prior to the use of Talexio". Read instructions here. Please note that there is further information to be added by clicking the three dots on the right hand side.



Bulk Import Template

To upload employee FS3 data in bulk, you may do this through the Onboarding Assistant. Click on the 'download template' button. An excel spreadsheet will be downloaded. This will need to be filled out as per explanation below.

To upload the template, there are two options:

  1. Simply save the file, go back to the Onboarding Assistant and select 'Upload', or;
  2. Upload through the Payroll Module

In the template you will need to fill in the first three tabs. Here is a breakdown of the fields required within the data upload template for FS3 data.
