Why choose Smart Pension?
Founded by a team of experienced finance and technology professionals, Smart Pension is a MAF-accredited online auto enrolment provider. Its platform was built specifically to help the thousands of small UK businesses sign their employees up to a workplace pension scheme, as required by law. Our team spent over a year developing and testing the platform whilst also establishing the partnerships necessary to meet regulatory requirements and deliver a seamless end-to-end experience.
Our Master Trust is overseen by professional trustees with decades of experience supervising large pension schemes and we have partnered with Apex Fund Services, one of the world's largest independent fund administrators, to securely and cost-effectively administer employees' pensions.
We also hold a 5-star rating from Defaqto in the auto enrolment category. In 2016, Legal and General Investment Management took a minority stake in our digital pension platform, part of a move by them to invest in high-achieving, innovative technology that has a positive impact on the wider UK economy.
Smart Pension is unequivocally the fastest auto enrolment platform on the market to sign up with and advisers and employers can use it for free - there are no upfront or ongoing charges for companies or their advisers. With thousands of satisfied employers, advisers and employees now using the Smart Pension platform, we know we offer the best workplace pension solution currently available in the UK.
Automatic re-enrolment with Smart Pension
If you're an employer who already uses Smart Pension for assessment then you'll be pleased to know that our advanced technology platform continues to do the heavy lifting so you don't have to.
Unlike some pension providers out there that require the employer to carry out the complex automatic re-enrolment process themselves, our platform will alert employers which of their staff should be automatically re-enrolled, and which of them are optional. This will help employer's avoid the burden of doing it themselves thus saving them invaluable time and resource which can be better spent elsewhere.
Our cutting-edge application will also carry out the assessment and send out the relevant letters to inform staff of the automatic re-enrolment process and how it will affect them, which is part of an employer's ongoing legal responsibility. This is also a very useful feature for those who operate older or less feature-rich payroll software which typically doesn't have the capability to carry out the assessment function.
