Xero Payroll introduces new automated pension re-enrolment feature

Xero have recently introduced a new pension re-enrolment feature in Xero Payroll.

The new feature helps business owners save time and eliminate some of the administrative burden of pension re-enrolment.

What is pension re-enrolment?

Even if you have no staff to re-enrol onto the scheme, you must still select a re-enrolment date and complete a re-declaration of compliance to inform the pension regulator of how you have met your obligations.

Remember, pension re-enrolment and re-declaration are an employer’s legal duty, and if you don’t act, you could be fined.

  • Reduce manual processes and therefore errors; and
  • Ensure secure integration with pension provides
