Run a payroll? Then you’re probably required to offer a workplace pension

You may have seen the TV adverts “We’re all in”. Under Auto Enrolment (AE) all employers are required to offer workplace pensions. Larger employers will have now enrolled their employees. For most micro employers (fewer than 50 employees) your staging date will be any time from now until 2017.

So what do you need to do?

We have compiled a list of staging dates for all our current payroll clients. If we’ve not yet contacted you yet that’s because your staging date is over 12 months away.

Approximately 18 months before your staging date every employer will receive a letter from the Pensions Regulator with you staging date and your letter code. Please forward a copy of that letter to us. We’re happy to become your secondary contact, the primary one being you the employer.

There’s much to consider and we’ll be holding meetings with nearly all of our payroll clients’ within the next 12 months. Alternatively you may prefer to approach an IFA about your company’s pension requirements. Either way – please keep us informed.

We look forward to guiding you through AE. It’s something new to all of us!
