Auto enrolment payroll software saves you time and money

As a UK employer, you’re required to provide a workplace pension scheme that you and your employees contribute to. You need to assess your workforce and offer auto enrolment to those eligible. 

Keeping track of who’s entitled to join, managing pensions data and payments, and communicating with your pension provider and staff can be tough. 

Sage payroll software does all these things for you, so you reduce your auto enrolment payroll costs and the time you need to spend managing pensions.
