Auto Enrolment

Workplace Pensions

The law on workplace pensions has changed. Under the Pensions Act 2008, every employer in the UK must put certain staff into a pension scheme and contribute towards it. This is called ‘automatic enrolment’ and is compulsory for all employees, there are some exemptions but these need to be applied for and ignoring the new regulations can result in substantial fines.

Whether you’re a hairdresser, an architect or employ a personal care assistant, if you employ at least one person you are an employer and you have certain legal duties. There is a lot to be done to ensure your business is ready when the time comes to start automatically enrolling your eligible employees into a qualifying workplace pension scheme.
