Auto-Enrolment Services

Employers must make arrangements so that their eligible jobholders become active members of an automatic enrolment pension scheme from their automatic enrolment date.

Automatic enrolment makes it compulsory for employers to offer eligible workers a workplace pension

Under a law introduced in 2012, all employers must eventually offer a workplace pension scheme and automatically enrol eligible workers in it. This requirement has applied to larger employers since October 2012 and will apply to all employers by 2018.

Your business will be issued with a staging date, which is the date by which you must start contributing to your employees’ pensions. Many business owners, however, overlook the amount of work and preparation that is needed BEFORE their staging date arrives!

  • Auto-enrolment fines have increased fourfold in the last quarter. 469 Auto-enrolment compliance notices were issued between July and September in 2015. Don’t get caught out – call us now for free advice
