    I assume your list of credits are all control accounts on the balance sheet. In which case looks okay to that point.

    When payments are made (pensions or otherwise) you then credit bank, debit the control accounts.

    Not sure where you cost of sales entry is coming from above. If you want to disclose the payroll costs in cost of sales (which may or may not be correct depending on the circumstances) I would do this as part of the year-end accounts prep, keep the entries separate in your bookkeeping.
