Pension Compliance Solution

Achieving compliance whilst delivering savings

If you already have an existing qualifying legacy or NEST pension in place for your employees or if you provide payroll services and are looking to enhance your portfolio of service offerings, AutoEnroll.Me has the perfect solution for auto enrolment management.

The cost-effective and user-friendly IG Pension Compliance Solution intelligently integrates into existing payroll infrastructure and provides a self-service portal for employees to view their salary summary and pension contribution information. Our pension management software solution does not replace the existing payroll software; it enables eligibility and contributions management, electronically, providing full visibility of contributions to employees via a secure portal.

In addition, we offer an upgrade option to IG Portal Plus; a full PAYE/auto enrolment management portal that provides the additional benefit of delivering all PAYE information to employees in a secure and private environment including full payslips, P11D's and P60's. If you or your clients are currently printing and posting payslips and other PAYE documents, the cost savings are immediate; postage, paper, printer consumables and time to process the payroll, can be reduced by more than 50%.

The pension compliance software can be designed to accommodate those employees with no email address and those that share a computer. Portal access requires a personal password and depending on requirements may also include extra information to provide an additional layer of security.

Not all legacy pension providers are supporting auto enrolment via existing schemes. In order to assess whether you are able to use your current scheme for the purposes of auto enrolment, please contact them directly. Alternatively, if you need help understanding what your existing scheme can and cannot do, follow the link to the AutoEnroll.Me virtual meeting room where an adviser will be happy to help.

Questions about Auto Enrolment
QuestionWho is affected by auto enrolment?

Every employer in the UK is affected by the Pensions Act and the requirement to provide a qualifying pension to employees. Click here for more information about how it may affect your organisation.

QuestionWhen will this become a requirement for my organisation?

We have provided a full list of staging dates here. You can also visit the Pensions Regulator website to find out more.

QuestionCan we delay this?

Yes, you can postpone your staging date for 3 months. Click here for more information.

QuestionMy headcount is always changing. How do I know when this will start?

The Pensions Regulator have already decided when your staging date is. For more information click here.

QuestionDoes automatic enrolment apply to all employees?

No. Click here for information about eligible employees.

QuestionCan I Auto Enroll before my Staging Date?

Yes. By implementing auto enrolment before your staging date, you can relieve the pressure of a forthcoming deadline by preparing in advance for the changes.

QuestionWhat do I need to implement auto enrolment?

You need a qualifying pension scheme and you will need to find a way to manage the contributions, reconciliation, eligibility and communications. If you already have a qualifying legacy or NEST pension in place and only require the software with which to manage the process, the pension compliance solution on this page is ideal.

QuestionDo I have to pick a Pension provider before my staging date?

You need to choose a pension provider before your staging date unless you choose to postpone for three months.

QuestionDo all employees have to have the same pension Provider?

No. You can choose from government sponsored NEST Pensions or a legacy pension provider. However, any GSIPP must be suitable. You can discover more about qualifying pension schemes here.

QuestionCan an employee opt out?

Yes. There are various letters that you send to your employees during the process of implementing auto enrolment. They explain what the employee choices are and any actions that are required by the employee. It is during this process that an employee can opt out. You can find some really useful information about employee communications and opt outs here.

QuestionWhat are the costs?

If you only require the IG Pension Compliance Software, there is just one cost involved; the annual licence fee. Contact us to learn more.

QuestionWho pays these costs?

It is the employers responsibility to cover the costs of implementing auto enrolment.

QuestionHow do I know what I need?

We are here to help. If you are not sure what you need, contact us today to discuss your business requirements.

Questions about the IG Solution
QuestionIs there a minimum period I need to sign up for?

Yes, our minimum contract period is 12 months.

QuestionIs there a minimum or maximum number of employees?

The solution has been designed specifically for small and medium sized companies.

Questions about the software
QuestionWill this replace the payroll software I already have?

No. The IG solution is designed to work with your current payroll software to manage the pension compliance aspect of the payroll system.

QuestionWill this interfere with the payroll software I already have?

No. The solution has been designed to work with the payroll software you already have. When you run the payroll, information is downloaded to the auto enrolment software that manages the auto enrolment process, ensuring compliance with the Pensions Act.

It also calculates eligibility for individual employees, calculates employee eligibility within each pay period, enables contribution information to be communicated to the pension provider and provides visibility of the information to the employer, employee and adviser through a secure online portal.

QuestionIs it compatible with all payroll software?

For integration details, please click the integration tab above. However, the software has been designed to work with most freely available software products.

QuestionWill software handle contributions into more than one Pension scheme?

Yes. The solution has been designed to handle both GSIPP and NEST pension schemes.

QuestionCan I use software if the company has a different Pension Provider?

Yes. Providing the pension is a qualifying legacy or NEST pension, the software can be used.

QuestionIs there an installation cost for the software?

No. You can install the software yourself. The process is very straightforward.

QuestionCan the IG pension Portal be extended to provide additional information and services to the company?

Yes. Once the standard pension portal is implemented and the employees are happy and comfortable using it, we can upgrade the portal to include full PAYE documentation (payslips/P11D/P60) via the IG Portal Plus solution.

QuestionWhat about those that share computers?

Access to the IG Portal is based around security criteria that is specified by the client. Most popular is the use of a secure password that the employee sets themselves. Access is then just a matter of using an internet connected device to gain entry to the portal.
