Smart Pension Assessment
At Smart Pension, we provide templates which can be found in the Payroll section of your account, where payroll software can generate employee data and 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.
Payroll software providers like MY PAYE, Brightpay, The Payroll Site 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.
Many payroll providers have a built in pensions module that allow you to export a pre-assessed pension contribution file in the Papdis standard to import into your Smart Pension account. 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.
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.
This table lists a number of popular payroll applications that are currently compatible with Smart Pension. You can see if your payroll application can work with the Smart Pension assessment tool or if it can produce a pre-calculated pension contribution file using Papdis.
We also display the payroll applications that support one click pension submissions using pensionsync or our own API.
