Estimate of GP (and non-GP) Providers NHS Pensionable Profits/Pay

An Estimate of GP (and non-GP) Providers NHS Pensionable Profits/Pay must be used to provide PCSE with projected pensionable pay so that the monthly contribution deductions for GP’s and Non-Clinical Partners are as accurate as possible. This will reduce outstanding contributions at year end.

Every GP Practice, sPMS Contractor, and ‘classic’ APMS Contractor (that is an Employing Authority) must submit this form to the relevant PCSE team by 1 March every year. It must also be submitted to PCSE there are any changes to practice GPs. It is important to be as accurate as possible when completing Estimates in order to avoid large adjustments at year end.

 

GPs

With PCSE Online, GP Performers who work for a GP Practice can now submit details of their own estimated earnings and any changes in their salary throughout the year. This will help to ensure that the correct pensions contributions are being taken from the Practice each month, and avoid large adjustments at the end of the financial year.

Information provide via PCSE Online will be automatically added to the main Practice Estimate form, making the overall administration easier for the practice.

GP Practices

Practices can submit the Estimate of Pensionable Contributions via PCSE Online. It must be submitted by 1 March every year to allow the correct pension contributions to be taken over the year. Practices should also ensure the form is submitted when there are any changes to practice GPs e.g. joiners, leavers, change of role, change of salary. 

GPs are now able to submit their own estimated earnings and any changes in their salary through the year. This information will be automatically added to the main Practice Estimate form.

PCSE will use this information to make any necessary adjustments to practice contribution deductions during the following financial year. PCSE will collect contributions based on this information from the practice’s main monthly payment.

Where possible, any adjustments will be deducted or paid in your next practice main monthly payment.

GPs must pension all of their eligible NHS GP income; they cannot ‘pick and mix’. However, GPs who trade as limited company in respect of ad hoc work cannot superannuate this income.

Practices are advised to complete this as soon as possible because from 1st April PCSE have been advised by NHS Pensions to deduct the contributions at the 14.5% maximum tiered rate regardless of  previous contribution rates if they do not have the estimate. This will impact on practices resulting in the higher deductions being made. Forms are available from the NHSBSA website and via PCSE online.
