Compulsory employee pensions. Are you ready?

Shortly the Pensions Regulator will be writing to all UK small and micro businesses to tell them about their new legal duties to automatically enrol their staff into a workplace pension.

The letter tells employers when their staging date is. This is when their automatic enrolment duties come into effect and is set in law. The regulator will also ask them to nominate a contact to receive their emails at key points leading up to this date. Employers may choose to nominate themselves or a business adviser, such as an IFA, accountant or bookkeeper, to receive these emails.

If you have any questions about your obligations for employee pensions we would welcome a discussion with you. Contact Jamie Hooper on 01376 573766.
