Your payroll solution will be an integral part of your auto enrolment duties. With a range of pension providers and payroll suppliers working together there are dozens of possible options.
Ideally your payroll provider will be able to communite directly with your pension scheme. Some providers have one-click solutions in place which makes the process of assessment and contributions extremely simple.
Other combinations of payroll and pension may involve creating spreadsheets listing all the contributions (these can often be produced automatically) which are then uploaded to your pension scheme.
The payroll software you use may be able to do your staff assessments for you. (Sometimes there is an additional charge for this feature.) Generally we recommend taking advantage of this if possible as it can reduce the number of steps involved.
If you complete our Auto enrolment questionnaire we can tell you how well your payroll provider can integrate with a pension scheme.
