Within Cintra iQ, you can create all different pension scheme types to enable the correct deductions from both employees and employers contributions. These schemes are linked to payees for payment and provision of output files. They are also linked as appropriate to the pension auto-enrolment functionality so that this process can be managed efficiently. For more information about Pension Schemes, see How Do I Set Up New Pension Schemes?
Depending on how you have defined the Pension Contribution, you can set up Fixed Amounts or Percentage Contributions or Salary Related Contributions, as well as set further contribution details.
