Signing-up to a pension scheme is just the beginning of AE compliance. There are many ongoing responsibilities that carry heavy penalties for non-compliance. Each time you process payroll, you must assess the workforce, auto-enroll, communicate, process opt-in and opt-out requests and so on. And in order to do these, you must transfer the data back and forth between your payroll and pension systems – every single week or month. This is an admin nightmare that can cost your business time and money as well as expose your employers to compliance risks.

With our unique approach to creating solutions for Bureau companies, we don’t settle for anything less than an automated solution. Exporting to CSV from one system and importing in to another system in every pay period is simply not an adequate solution for Payroll Bureaus!

And thanks to the combined expertise of the Accentra, Smart Pension and PensionSync teams, we have produced the most elegant solution in the industry. A truly unique auto-enrolment solution that virtually takes away all the burdens of AE compliance obligations from bureaus and employers alike.

It’s so simple and powerful, it’s an absolute game-changer.
