Payroll integration

We want to make NEST as easy as possible for everyone to use. That’s why we’ve developed an innovative solution to make the data management process more straightforward.

Web services for payroll integration

Employers can run the NEST scheme - whatever payroll system they’re using. Now we’re working with leading payroll providers on web services to make sending data even simpler.

This innovation simplifies the exchange of information between employers and NEST by enabling payroll software to ‘talk’ to NEST. That means employers can manage NEST through their payroll software, meeting their day-to-day auto enrolment duties without needing to log into their NEST account.

By eliminating the need to log into two systems and reducing data processing errors, this will save time and administration effort for employers and their delegates. The ability to submit key data in one click will also result in faster processing times.

Web services case study

Whether you’re running a NEST scheme yourself or for someone else, web services is designed to make set-up straightforward while saving time and reducing errors. We spoke to Nannypaye, a payroll bureau representing families that employ domestic workers about how NEST’s web services has changed their business.  Find out below how director Shelly Cliffin has used web services to streamline operations at Nannypaye and what it means for their clients.
