About Smart Pension
Smart Pension is an auto enrolment service for businesses. All UK businesses are now required by law to set up a workplace pension scheme for their employees. We aim to help businesses become compliant with their auto enrolment duties as fast as possible, to allow business owners to get back to their day job.
