Within Cintra iQ, you can set which Relevant Pay  headings are used for which percentage deduction. Once within the Relevant Payments, you can choose if either EEER or both parts count towards the calculation, along with other choices such as if the heading is applied to all employees or only part-timers.

To create relevant pay

  1. Navigate to the Pension/Benefit Schemes definition window.
    Go to Cintra iQ: Payroll> Payroll Setup> Benefit Schemes> Pension & Other Benefits
  2. Navigate to the Relevant Pay tab.
  3. From the Non Relevant Payments pane, select the desired heading. 
  4. Perform either the following:
    • Click the << button to transfer all of the headings to the Relevant Payments pane.
    • Click the < button to transfer a single heading to the Relevant Payments pane.
    • Click the >> to remove the headings from the Relevant Payments pane.
    • Click the > to remove the single heading to the Relevant Payments pane.
  5. In the Relevant Payments pane, determine if each addition heading is either EE, ER related or if both parts count towards the calculation as well as the other settings.


    What appears as choices depends on the Contribution Type.

  6. Select the Relevant Pay Adjustment option, if applicable.
  7. Enter a Pensionable Earnings Cap, if applicable.
    Right-click New in the Pensionable Earnings Cap pane, the Insert [pension name] Earning Cap form appears. Enter the Earnings Cap amount and the Cap effective from date. Click the OK button. 
  8. Select an Annual Pay Type for Salary Banding, if applicable.
  9. Enter an Annual Hours used for Salary Banding amount, if applicable.
  10. When finished: 
    1. Click the Apply button.
    2. Click the OK button.
