Pension Auto Enrolment

It’s the employer’s responsibility to provide a workplace pension to an employee.

Legislation introduced by the UK government means that every employer in the nation, who employs a minimum of one person, must offer a pension scheme for its employees.

To meet the Auto Enrolment requirements, The Pensions Regulator (TPR) has advised that all employers need to undertake the following stages to be ready to have a scheme that is suitable for requirements:

  • Be aware of the staging date
  • Assess your workforce
  • Review any current/existing pension arrangements
  • Update all/any changes to all employees
  • Automatically enrol any "eligible jobholders"
  • Register with TPR and maintain all records
  • Contribute to your worker's pensions

The key focus for employees is the pension scheme itself but employers must be aware of the need to comply with the new regulations and to carry out all the implied duties. This can place firms of all sizes under pressure and we aim to provide effective support in this line of work.

It is worth knowing The Pension Regulator holds significant enforcement powers. Companies can be penalised by a one-off £400 fine firms who employ between 50 and 250 employees may be fined up to £2,500 per day they don’t comply with regulations.

Our services can help you plan for auto enrolment while ensuring you comply with all legislation and requirements. If you require any guidance or advice on Pension Reform, please get in touch and we will be happy to provide you with additional support.
