The introduction of auto-enrolment, the need to monitor an employer's financial wellbeing and a new The Pensions Regulator (TPR) governance regime is creating new demands on managing the interaction between employers and pension funds.

At Aquila Heywood our Employer Services platform, powered by i‑Connect, helps employers and pension schemes reduce the cost of auto-enrolment and pension administration.

Meet your auto-enrolment obligations and data submissions

Our Employer Services solution is powered by i-Connect, a low-risk, cost-effective solution that effectively handles all the data interactions between employers and funds.

Data is taken directly from the payroll system, automatically identifying new joiners, opt-outs and leavers and seamlessly generating an extract for submission to the funds/schemes.

All reporting and record-keeping requirements necessary for auto-enrolment are managed within a highly secure, integrated environment.

Automatic production of expected contributions to be received each month per employer ensures rapid reconciliation with incoming payments.

Assessment of the cost of members' early retirement is shared with employers so they can determine viability of potential voluntary release programmes.
