Once enrolled into a pension scheme, pension contribution deductions start from the current open or subsequent pay period.
Deductions commence without any consultation with the employee, thus meeting the employer's legal requirement to automatically enrol the employee.
The deduction applied to the payslip is made in accordance with the contribution rates and earnings bands selected when setting up your pension scheme in BrightPay.
Please note: if tax relief is at source, then the employee contribution will be adjusted by 0.2%.
