Before you can submit workers and contributions to Smart Pension you will need to authorise your Qtac Payroll software.

The guide below will walk you through configuring the pension fund and authorising it with the pension provider.

Setting up your pensions fund

The first step will be to configure Qtac to use the direct API for the pension fund in question. 

You can do this in 'Company' > 'Pensions' using the 'Use pension provider API' tick box and setting the API provider to 'Qtac' 

Creating the link to Smart Pension

When you are ready to submit to Smart Pension follow the steps below to finish the linking 

  1. Go to 'Auto Enrolment' > 'Smart Pension Direct' > 'Submit Contributions' 

  2. Select the pay frequency and tax period you want to send and click 'Submit' 
  3. Once you have clicked 'submit' you will get the box below, where you will need to enter your Smart Pension credentials

Once you have entered these details into the software, they will be automatically saved for your future submissions.

Qtac is now linked to Smart Pension, ready for future submissions to take place.
