Commonly Asked Questions

How much does Creative Auto Enrolment Pension cost?

Accountants, Payroll Providers and IFAs can sign up for a secure, free Professional Adviser Portal, which allows you to easily handle auto enrolment duties for your clients in bulk.

Employers pay £21.50 per month for the full solution. This means all their auto enrolment duties are completed on their behalves, and their employees are auto enrolled into the Creative Auto Enrolment Pension scheme of Creative Pension Trust. The pension is run and managed by experts so neither you, nor your clients, will need to become one!

Does Creative Auto Enrolment Pension work with any type of payroll software?

Yes. We map our software to work with any standard payroll report behind the scenes and you can even enter data manually if you prefer.

Do you really guarantee auto enrolment compliance?

Yes. All you need to do is follow our simple process online and, as long as you provide us with the correct payroll data, we’ll handle the rest. We go much further than any other major master trust or multi-employer Workplace Pension Scheme to ensure mistakes don’t happen. We even complete every employers’ declaration of compliance to the Pensions Regulator for them!

What are the benefits of your auto enrolment solution for advisers?

We make running payroll as simple as it used to be before auto enrolment began. You can run and close your payroll in the normal way and then handle auto enrolment afterwards. This way, there are no risks of not paying people on time.

Our solution is fully automated, taking the auto enrolment process from hours to minutes, and all from uploading a single payroll file. We even support bulk uploads, saving you more time.

Unlike any other provider, we offer an Auto Enrolment Compliance Guarantee – when you follow our process, you can’t get anything wrong – which makes for happy, loyal customers.

What pension scheme do you use?

Qualifying employees will be auto enrolled into the Creative Pension Trust, a leading UK master trust pension scheme, authorised by the Pensions Regulator.

The scheme is wholly independent and overseen by an independent Board of Trustees.

Members of the Creative Auto Enrolment Pension scheme, which is Creative Pension Trust’s specially designed scheme for new employers, can access to a range of investment funds, which are managed by Scottish Widows. In addition to a default investment strategy for members who do not want to make their own investment decisions, other specialist funds are also available, including Ethical and Sharia funds.

How established and secure is the pension and members’ investments?

Very. Creative Pension Trust is authorised and regulated by the Pensions Regulator and a leading UK multi-employer master trust scheme. The investment funds have substantial assets, worth hundreds of millions of pounds, and are managed by Scottish Widows, one of the UK’s most trusted life, pensions and investment brands.

Is Creative Auto Enrolment Pension suitable for larger employers or employers with existing pensions?
