Automatically determine the status of your workers.
Our software will automatically perform the assessment of your workers each and every pay period, determining if they are eligible, non-eligible, entitled, in postponement, or already in a qualifying scheme.
Automatically enrol eligible jobholders
Pension contributions calculated and deducted as part of your existing payroll processing.
On assessment, anyone that is found to be an eligible jobholder will have the necessary postponement rules applied; and at the end of postponement be automatically assigned to the default qualifying workplace pension scheme in the payroll. Their contributions will be calculated and deducted as part of your existing payroll processing. Any relevant salary sacrifice treatment will also be applied to earnings at this stage.
Opt-outs and refunds
Automatically refund contributions in the next payroll.
Based on instruction from your pension provider, imported through a data file or manually keyed, the system will mark workers as having opted out and automatically refund their contributions in the next payroll. Scheme leavers outside of the opt-out window will have their contributions stopped.
Easily handle opt-in and join requests from non-eligible jobholders.
Should you have any non-eligible jobholders wishing to opt-in to a scheme, or entitled workers wishing to join, these can be manually entered or imported through a data file. The contributions will be automatically calculated and deducted based on the relevant scheme rules.
October 2012 saw changes to the law on workplace pensions, requiring every employer in the UK to put certain staff into a pension scheme and make contributions.
