Auto-Enrolment

We manage everything

So you can have
peace of mind

Auto-enrolment has been introduced by the Government to help people save for their retirement, in later life through a pension scheme at work. It’s a process where employers automatically enrol eligible employees into a qualifying pension scheme without any action on the part of the employee. The duties imposed upon employers (listed below) are complex. However, we can take care of the entire process for you, making it smooth and pain-free. There are 2 elements to auto enrolment:

1. Getting a scheme set up

2. The ongoing processes and compliance

New auto enrolment duties include:

·         Selecting the most appropriate compliance strategy

·         Assessing and categorising employees every pay period

·         Choosing a pension provider

·       ·         Communicating with all employees

·         Ensuring no-one at the employer encourages anyone to opt out

·         Making employer contributions to the pension scheme

·         Deducting contributions from employees’ wages and paying them into the pension scheme

·         Maintaining a complete audit trail that can be inspected by the Pensions Regulator at any time

·         Ensuring companies have a solution that meets all government standards

·         Officially declaring compliance to the Pensions Regulator within five months of the employer’s staging date and then every three years

·         Ongoing governance and oversight of the chosen pension scheme
