Auto enrolment

The law on workplace pensions has changed.

All employers are legally required to automatically enrol certain staff into a pension scheme and make contributions.

You have to tell your staff about the scheme and allow other staff to join if they request to do so.

The process of auto enrolment is a complex and time consuming process if done manually.

You need to:

  • Find out your staging date
  • Have an appropriate pension scheme in place
  • Assess your workforce on an on going basis
  • Tell you staff about the scheme
  • Deal with auto enrolment
  • Calculate pension contribution
  • Deal with opt in and opt out
  • Send out the appropriate letters to staff at every stage prior to, at and after the staging date
  • Pay pension contributions into the scheme
  • Keep records
