Are you aware of the new legislation relating to Workplace Pensions? This new legislation is called auto-enrolment and it is very important for employers.
What is Auto-Enrolment?
Auto-enrolment is short for automatic enrolment. This describes the process whereby employers are going to have to put in place pension arrangements for their employees, make contributions, ensure compliance and then, in the future, manage the administration and records that go with this.
The legislation is now active, but the full impact is slowly being spread out over the next five years or so, with different employers being affected at different points.
What do you have to do?
One of the lesser known aspects of the new legislation is that employers are required by law to provide the right information in writing, to the right individual at the right time, so that their employees know how automatic enrolment will affect them.
To learn everything you are required to do, it is worth seeking advice.
