We rely on you as the employer for your data and contribution submissions for the scheme to work. Likewise, when a member’s circumstances change, we can’t do anything until we’ve received your official notification.

The following is a quick reference guide to key deadlines:

Monthly contribution return (CR1)

19th of the month following the salary payment, for example, November’s CR1 form and contributions payment should be received by 19 December.

Starters, changes and leavers forms

One month from date of event or change. Applies to our S1, C1, C2 and L1 notification forms.

Appeal decisions

Two months from receipt of the appeal from the member.

Year end return

19 April: The scheme year runs 1 April to 31 March.

Employee contribution rate review

1 April: Each scheme member's employee contributions rate must be reviewed yearly, but as a scheme employer you have the discretion to review the employee's rate at other times during the year.
