Automatic enrolment overview
Whether you’re a hairdresser, an engineer or you employ a personal care assistant or a nanny, if you employ just one person, then you are an employer and have ‘duties’ under pensions law.
Automatic enrolment means that you – along with every other employer across the UK – must put certain staff into a pension scheme and pay into it. So it’s important that you recognise what you need to do – and by when – in order to comply with the specific duties you have as an employer.
The Pensions Regulator enforces the law on workplace pensions and we can assist you with guidance to help you meet your duties.
The duties you have will depend on your own circumstances as an employer and those of your staff. Give us a call and we can look at your circumstance to help you through the minefield.
