Now Pensions will work with payroll provider ADP to deliver an integrated auto-enrolment (AE) service, the master trust has announced.
The scheme, owned by Dutch parent company ATP, will be available to all ADP UK payroll clients looking to meet their AE duties.
ADP will be responsible for workforce assessment, while Now Pensions will provide statutory communications for members and ongoing administration, with "no scheme underwriting, no minimum membership numbers or any minimum member contribution levels".
The arrangement will reduce implementation risk and minimise the need for continued work or intervention from employers, Now Pensions said.
Now Pensions chief executive Morten Nilsson (pictured) said payroll providers were "very often the first port of call" for employers who were struggling with the complexities of AE.
The collaboration "makes sense", ADP product development director Trevor Townsend added, as the providers could "deliver a complete solution that removes most of the work that employers need to undertake".
Now Pensions has so far attracted fewer members than its main low-cost master trust competitors.
