The latest updates for pension scheme administrators about the ending of contracting-out have been published in countdown bulletin 40.

The update includes details on:

  • Scheme Financial Reconciliation – in particular, the implications if you do not request your financial position
  • Contributions Equivalent Premium guidance – HMRC has promised to publish guidance about the ongoing administration of contracted-out pension rights soon
  • Clerical Scheme Reconciliation Service (SRS)
  • SRS Stalemate Queries.

Although the contracting-out was abolished in April 2016, there has been a three-year transitional period, of which we are now reaching an end.

Find out more about how pension scheme administration is affected by the ending of contracting-out, including how it affects pension entitlements, notifications and Guaranteed Minimum Pension calculations.


"I have always found the Learn Centre to be helpful and supportive of not only mine but the team's payroll training needs. The blended learning approach works well for me and I would not hesitate to recommend them as a Payroll training specialist provider not only for online delivery (e-learning) but also face 2 face and in-house. The Payroll Professionals Conference is also a great networking opportunity."
