Automatic Enrolment is a government led scheme, intended to get more people saving for retirement. It affects any person/business who has at least one employee, throughout the UK.
Under the legislation, all UK employers are required to automatically enrol their eligible employees into a qualifying workplace pension scheme. Both the employee and the employer must make minimum contributions into the scheme.
As an employer, whether you are a long-established business or a brand new start-up, it is imperative that you continually assess your employees and review your auto-enrolment procedures, to ensure that you are compliant.
