Employers' liability to make payments

Employer’s contributions

79.—(1) An employing authority must contribute to the fund in each year covered by a rates and adjustments certificate under regulation 77 or 78 the amount appropriate for that authority as calculated in accordance with the certificate and paragraph (4).

(2) During each of those years an employing authority must make payments to the fund on account of the amount required for the whole year.

(3) Those payments on account must –

(a)be paid at the end of the intervals determined under regulation 81(1); and

(b)equal the appropriate proportion of the whole amount due under paragraph (1) for the year in question.

(4) An employer’s contribution for any year is the common percentage for that year of the pay on which contributions have during that year been paid to the fund under Part II by employees who are active members (other than contributions under regulation 17(3)), increased or reduced by any individual adjustment specified for that employer for that year in the rates and adjustments certificate.

(5) The common percentage is the common rate of employer’s contribution specified in that certificate, expressed as a percentage.

(6) Where an employee –

(a)is treated, under regulation 16(4), as if she had paid contributions; or

(b)has paid contributions during a period of maternity absence,

the pay on which the common percentage is calculated is the pay the employee would have received if she has not been absent.

Employer’s further payments

80.—(1) Where an employing authority passes a resolution under regulation 54 it must pay the appropriate sum to the fund before the expiry of the relevant period (as defined in paragraph (7) of that regulation) unless before the end of that period it has agreed as mentioned in paragraph (6)(a) of that regulation.

(2) Where an employing authority passes a resolution under regulation 130 in a case where paragraph (4)(a) of that regulation does not apply, it must pay the appropriate sum to the fund before the expiry of the period of one month beginning with the date on which the resolution is passed.

(3) The appropriate sum for a member is such sum as is shown as appropriate in guidance issued by the Government Actuary.

(4) Any extra charge on the fund resulting from –

(a)a resolution under regulation 14, 54, 55 or 130; or

(b)a member becoming entitled to an ill-health pension calculated under regulation 30 by reference to an enhanced membership period; or

(c)a member becoming entitled to a pension calculated under regulation 28 (redundancy, etc) or regulation 33 (other early leavers, etc),

must be repaid to the fund by the employing authority concerned (but, in the case of resolutions under regulations 54 and 130, only so far as not paid under paragraph (1) or, as the case may be, paragraph (2)).

(5) Any additional payments that are due under paragraph (4) shall be made, if the Committee agrees by –

(a)a single payment of an amount determined by the Committee on the advice of an actuary appointed by it; or

(b)instalments, each of an amount determined by the Committee on the advice of an actuary appointed by it, covering a period not exceeding 5 years, or such longer period as the Committee may allow, the first and subsequent instalments becoming payable as agreed between the Committee and the employing authority.

Payments by employing authorities to the Committee

81.—(1) Every employing authority must pay to the Committee, on or before such dates falling at intervals of not more than 12 months as the Committee may determine (but in the case of the amounts mentioned in sub-paragraph (a) not later than the time required under Article 49(8) of the Pensions (Northern Ireland) Order 1995(1)) –

(a)all amounts from time to time deducted from the pay of its employees under these Regulations;

(b)any amount received by it under regulation 17, (by deduction or otherwise) during the interval; and

(c)any extra charge payable under regulation 80 of which it has been notified by the Committee during the interval.

(2) Every payment under paragraph (1)(a) shall be accompanied by a statement showing –

(a)the name and pay of each of the employing authority’s employees who is an active member;

(b)which employees are paying voluntary contributions;

(c)the amounts which represent deductions from the pay of each of the employees and the periods covered by the deductions, distinguishing amounts representing deductions for voluntary contributions.

(3) The Committee may direct the information mentioned in paragraph (2) to be given to it instead in such form and at such intervals (not exceeding 12 months) as it specifies in the direction.

(4) Paragraphs (1) and (2) do not apply to the employing authority which is the Committee.

(5) Voluntary contributions are contributions other than those under Part II.
