Creative Auto Enrolment, part of the Creative Benefits group of companies, developed a pension scheme designed specifically for smaller companies having to provide automatic enrolment for their workforces from 2015 onwards.
Called the Creative Pension Trust, the scheme is governed by specialist independent trustees who ensure it operates in members’ best interests at all times. All of the contributions paid into the pension scheme are invested with Scottish Widows, one of the UK’s most trusted life, pensions and investment brands, according to research provided by IPSOS*.
*More consumers see Scottish Widows as a brand that ‘can be completely trusted with your money’ than any other major LP&I brand in the UK. Source: IPSOS brand tracking data is based on 3,287 ABC1 consumers responsible for household financial decisions.
Why Creative Pension Trust?
Creative Auto Enrolment believes that smaller companies are confused by their duties and have little or no experience in running a scheme. In addition, unlike many larger businesses they have little budget for seeking advice and setting up a pension scheme.
The aim of Creative Pension Trust is therefore to provide a simple, easy and compliant pension scheme that absolutely minimises any work that the employer would need to carry out to comply.
It provides an intuitive, step by step approach which guarantees employer compliance provided the instructions are followed.
How Creative Pension Trust integrates with Primo Payroll
Primo Payroll has integrated The Pension Trust into the payroll software process to simplify and ease the burden of running the auto enrolment pension scheme. The scheme can be set up within a few minutes directly from Primo Payroll.
From the staging date all workers will need to be assessed for eligibility for each pay period. This is achieved simply and seamlessly from the data held within Primo Payroll.
The data will be securely sent to Creative when required and will be used without having to manually complete spreadsheets or exporting and importing files between pension provider and payroll.
Workers will be assessed and pension deductions made for those requiring enrolment and the appropriate statutory communications sent either by email or provided to the employer in order that they may be printed and distributed.
We believe that we are the first payroll provider to provide a fully integrated end to end solution for auto enrolment which will minimise the workload and burden on our users.
