This is an agreement between the employer and the employee to exchange part of the employees (gross) salary for pension payments saving the employee NIC and tax. The employer can also save NIC and this saving can either be reinvested into the pension or be used to offset costs. See table for potentional savings.
This can be implemented at the start, on the yearly anniversary or at your 3 year mandatory re-enrolment.
Employers are able to postpone when cotributions start into the scheme for up to 3 months
Pay reference periods can be aligned.

Only entre workers into the scheme after their probation ends.
