Yes, and employer contributions are paid gross as there is no tax deducted from them.
Employer contributions can be paid by cheque, direct debit or BACS. For a single contribution please make sure the payment is accompanied by a SIPP additional contribution form.
To make a payment via BACs please contact us via secure message for our bank details. To set up a direct debit to allow for regular contributions to be made to your SIPP please ask your employer to complete a SIPP direct debit form and send it to us.
