We are compatible with a wide variety of payroll providers some of which have intergrated directly
with us for one click data submission via the Smart Pension API, or offer pensionsync.

Payroll Support Options

Smart Pension allows you to upload your payroll to be assessed in your Smart Pension account, alternatively you can upload payroll from your payroll software that has been pre-assessed and the relevant pension contributions calculated.

Additionally, we accept one click submissions using our own API or via pensionsync.

Supported Payroll Providers

1. Using Smart Pension for assessment & communication

At Smart Pension, we provide templates which can be found in the Payroll section of our administration platform, where payroll software companies can generate employee data and payroll details such as salary amounts for each employee. This file is then submitted to our application and we run the assessment and calculate the pension contributions for you.

2. Single click submission via Smart Pension API Ready payroll providers.

Payroll software providers like MY PAYE, Brightpay and Primo Payroll (with more coming soon), who are directly integrated with the Smart Pension API, are able to submit employee, payroll and contributions data from within their payroll application directly to Smart Pension with just a single click.

3. Single click submission via pensionsync

Pensionsync have integrated with our API to automate the transfer of pension data from payroll straight into the Smart Pension platform. If your payroll software provider already has an established partnership with pensionsync then you have the ability to pass employee, payroll and contributions data over to Smart Pension with a single click. Please see the table below for more details.

4. Pre-assessed contributions

If you assess your employees and calculate their pension contributions within your payroll application, then you can submit a pre-calculated .csv file using the Payroll and Pension Data Interface Standard (PAPDIS).

Papdis is supported by most popular payroll applications, some of which are listed below. If your payroll application does not yet support Papdis then we have provided instructions on how to make this file in the report designer for your payroll application.
