Do I need to upgrade my payroll software?

Auto enrolment can be complicated. Accurate and timely data is therefore needed to ensure that all the required actions are completed when due. To find out whether your current payroll software is adequate to handle the requirements for auto enrolment you will need to liaise with your payroll or your payroll software provider to find out what systems and processes they have in place to deal with all aspects of auto enrolment, including assessing and communicating with members.

It is unlikely that your payroll can handle all the tasks involved in auto enrolment, so we suggest you look to partner with a provider that can manage the parts of auto enrolment that your payroll provider is not set up to do.
