Company pension settings | Payroll Web Platform

Overview

A workplace pension is a way of saving for retirement that an organisation will arrange for its employees. The organisation must automatically enrol employees into a pension scheme and make contributions when employees meet certain criteria, however, employees can opt out if they want.

The Pension Settings feature is where you set up your workplace pension details, such as your staging date and re-enrolment dates. The feature also allows you to choose to either sync with an existing provider or you can add your pension schemes and contribution plans manually to the platform.
