Working with payroll and other software

Understand the different ways you can send information about your employees to Aviva, and set up a system that works with your chosen payroll provider.


Understanding the options for how our workplace pension works with your payroll

There are a number of options, depending on the type of payroll software you use. Or, you may not have payroll software and need to set up your pension scheme in a different way.

  • Some types of payroll are ‘integrated’ with Aviva’s pension scheme. This means you can sychronise the software to automatically send information about which employees need to be auto enrolled and how much they want to contribute to their pension.
  • If your payroll software doesn’t support integration, you can still make your administration easier if you are using a payroll system that is compatible with Aviva.
  • If you don’t use payroll software, or it isn’t compatible then you can enter information manually

Payroll integration with pensionsync

pensionsync is a platform which allows certain types of payroll software to integarate with Aviva’s pension scheme. Check if your payroll software if compatible with pensionsync.

If it is, speak to your payroll provider about opening a pensionsync account. Once you’ve opened your pensionsync account, click on the Aviva link in ‘Get scheme’ to start setting up your Aviva workplace pension scheme.

Exporting data from a compatible payroll system and then uploading it to Aviva

If your payroll software doesn’t support integration, you may be able to export a file containing your pension contribution data to Aviva and then upload this to your workplace pension scheme. If there are any errors, you can correct them in the billing portal.

You can export compatible files from payroll software such as Sage, quickbooks, Iris, moneysoft, 12 Pay, Accord, ADP and Keytime.

Entering your data into MyAvivaBusiness manually

If you don’t use payroll software, you may need to enter your payroll data directly into our system. Take the training to find out how you’ll do this each month.
