Remove the administration headache of auto enrolment and pension contributions and filing

Pensions is an area where complicated rules and ever-changing legislation can make it difficult for schools to keep on top of compliance.

As education specialists we have the expertise to understand the complexities surrounding Teacher’s Pension (TP) and Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) regulations and reporting requirements. Our pension service takes on the administrative workload as part of our payroll service.

Peace of mind that we’ve got it covered

We can handle both your auto-enrolment and pension reporting. We have experience working with contractual pension schemes and statutory pension’s schemes.

Education pensions are extremely complex but our pension team are on hand to deliver a streamlines service, including the filing of paperwork for starts, leavers, contract changes, contracts and returns.

We are able to pick up the pension process from where payroll processing ends, handling all data submissions, monthly and annual returns as well as dealing with any resulting queries.

Our pension service includes:

  • Processing of pension contributions through payroll
  • Payment to appropriate provider
  • Completion of monthly returns for Teachers and Local Government Pensions
  • Completion of annual service and contribution returns for each scheme

Our Pension Service also provides the interface between you and the pension scheme / local authority (non Academies) ensuring all necessary changes are processed.

This includes:
