If you want to re-assess your staff with your Payroll, you can do so by importing your re-assessment results into your Smart Pension account via the same process that you are used to using for submitting pension contributions.
Whether you are using a pre-assessed payroll file (Papdis), our assessment templates, our re-assessment tool or via a one click payroll provider, you can submit your re-assessment for those employees your want to re-enrol (e.g. mandatory and optional re-assessments).
Pay Period start date
In order to make this easy for your payroll administrator, you should set the Pay Period start date to be your chosen re-enrolment date.
Employer A has chosen a re-enrolment date of 6 April 2017.
Employee B opted out on 1 January 2016 and must be re-assessed (Which employees to re-enrol?).
Employer A can re-assess the employee submitting a monthly contribution for Employee B starting on 6 April 2017 and ending on 5 May 2017.
Align the Re-enrolment date with your pay period
Therefore, since the next re-enrolment date can be chosen by the employer within a six-month window, it might be helpful to align this date with your company pay period.
