Automatic enrolment – Is your business ready for the challenge?

The Government estimates that millions of people in the UK are currently not saving enough for their retirement. To help solve this problem, the Government has introduced legislation that means every employer will have a duty to put a pension scheme in place. You’ll have to automatically enrol certain workers into the scheme and make contributions on their behalf.

This presents a huge challenge for your business. You’ll need to understand your automatic enrolment duties, the impact on your business and the changes you’ll have to make.

We can help you with this challenge. We have teamed up with a top employee benefits company to offer a range of services that will help you to understand and prepare for automatic enrolment. By starting to plan now, we can help you to mitigate costs and minimise disruption to your business.

What it means for you?

Don’t underestimate what’s involved. There’s a lot to think about, for example.

  • Does your current pension arrangement (if you have one) qualify as an automatic enrolment scheme?
  • How will you communicate with your workers to get the right message across?
  • How will you cope with the additional administration?
  • Will your existing payroll process need to be altered?

How can we help?

As you may be aware your business will have already been allocated a staging date – the deadline from which you are required to comply with the new regulations. We will provide practical help and advice every step of the way to ensure you meet this deadline.

We will be able to produce a useful report based on the number of workers you have which:

  • Tells you when the automatic enrolment changes affect your business.
  • Gives some guidance on what you’ll need to do before, on and after your staging date.
  • Tells you what will happen if you don’t comply.
  • Gives more information about how we can help you.

The sooner you act the more time you’ll have to consider what options will suit your business and have a positive impact on staff retention and recruitment.
