Workplace Administration

A complete pensions administration solution

Platform

Our proprietary administration platform, HartLink, manages more pension arrangements than any other platform in the UK. 

Pensions payroll

Minimum risk, minimum cost, minimum time. That's what we achieve when we take on your pensions payroll.  We are currently responsible for the payment of over 1.87 million UK pensioners, making over 18 million pension payments a year, with a total value of £15.7 billion. 

Our pensions payroll service is highly automated and allows scheme members to view payments easily online. With full integration, there's no need to transfer information between systems. 

Fund accounting

Our fund accounting services are led by qualified specialists and support all scheme types. We can assist in daily treasury monitoring, monitoring the receipt and investment of contributions and the preparation of self-assessment tax returns.

Scheme secretarial services

We take responsibility for managing your pension scheme effectively and efficiently on your behalf. There’s a full range of services on offer, including managing trustee meetings and record keeping. And, thanks to our partnership with e-Share, you’ll have access to secure software that lets you view all scheme information and enhance communications.

Reporting systems

We offer a range of report-writing services, with the ability to specify the reporting period and reporting set and create user-friendly outputs.

The Pensions Directory

Not every scheme is big enough to need a dedicated website, so we've launched The Pensions Directory to enable every scheme, no matter what size, to comply with online disclosure requirements.

You’ll have your own dedicated page so you can publish information about your scheme, host documents and generate a bespoke search engine-optimised URL to send to your members. 

Features include:

  • Your scheme or company logo
  • Bespoke header 
  • Synopsis of your scheme 
  • Key document hosting 
  • Document archive
  • Contact details
  • Tailored URL
