How to Make NHIF Payment For a Company Using NHIF Byproduct Number
NHIF have introduced a far more efficient & faster method of collecting employers monthly payroll byproducts to NHIF via the online Byproduct system. Rather than sending hard copy documents or email of the same to NHIF, you can just register and upload it once you log in. This makes processing faster and reduces the chances of human error.
It is possible and much easier to make your NHIF contribution for your employees online. You achieve this using the NHIF employer portal. However, this method is only available for companies or organizations. For individual members, they should use the Mpesa option and they can get more information from this link.

Preparing The Excel File
To prepare your Excel file you better download the provided By-product Sample. Click on the link provided to download. Once you have downloaded it, the best thing is to replace the existing data with your own data. Input your employer code, employer name (name of the company), the month of contribution, and then the employees’ data. If you do not have a payroll number for the employees you can just give them any sequential numbers. Row number 4 should be left empty.
To add more employees right click on one of the rows with a name and insert a new row. You can insert as many as you want depending on how many employees you have. Confirm the formula for the total or if the total itself is okay. Save the file with the name of the company and note where you have saved it. This is because you will be required to upload it.

If all is well, you can submit your file and then print the form that you will be given. You will use this in the bank for your payment. You can save this file and be using it for your future submissions as it will give you less work of filling in the data.
