Generating regular pay exports

Before you get started

The Pagga Compensation module can be used to collect and monitor all the remuneration items needed to produce the payroll: the fixed and variable items of the salary as well as the additional remuneration items not included in the gross salary, e.g. the number of meal vouchers, reimbursement of transportation or packed lunches, etc.

The "Exports" feature is used to generate variable remuneration items (VRI) for each pay period in the form of a CSV file that can be imported into your payroll tool.

This feature is also used to extract information from the current fixed pay of each employee present during the period in order to put together the turn-around file needed to prepare the payroll, which can be sent to your service provider when the payroll is outsourced.

Generating a pay export

The export module is accessible in the Pagga Compensation app and visible to users with the "VRI Export" permission of the "Pagga Compensation" app.


Click on the export format to access the details of the VRIs to be exported.

By default, the module displays the VRI details for the next pay period to be exported. If this is your first export, the module will ask you to specify the pay period to be processed.

At this stage, Pagga Compensation checks that all the employees present during the period receive a fixed remuneration. A link provides access to the file of the employee concerned so that they can complete the missing remuneration items.

It is possible to disable this check in the export settings.


Click Generating export files.

The generated files are displayed and made available as a download link.


  • A VRI export file in CSV format, as defined in the export settings
  • An Excel turn-around file It summarizes all the current remuneration items (fixed and variable) for the exported period.


The layout of the turn-around file makes it easy to identify the fixed remuneration types (in blue) and variable remuneration items (in yellow). The fixed remuneration items coming into effect during the period or edited since the last export are highlighted with a special typography (bold underlined + Excel comment).

Each completed export is logged with the linked files.

If necessary, you can regenerate the corresponding export by deleting the last export.
