Need help with auto enrolment?

Bevan & Buckland logoAre you an employer?  Want some help dealing with Auto Enrolment?

When considering your responsibilities as an employer, the prospect of having to deal with the challenges that the auto enrolment legislation will throw at you can seem daunting, writes Gareth Tregidon, Financial Planning Manager at Bevan & Buckland Chartered Accountants.

One of the duties of an employer under the automatic enrolment regime is that you are required by law to provide in writing:

  • the right information
  • to the right individual
  • at the right time

This covers all eligible workers, including certain fixed-term contract workers, and excludes certain other groups.  Deciding who is, and who is not, eligible can be a challenge in itself.

Thankfully, help is now available via The Pensions Regulator’s (TPR) website.

The TPR has created a template tool to help employers ensure they send the right letters, to the right people, at the right time. And best of all, it’s free!

The tool can be accessed here.

Please remember that we are able to help if you have any questions regarding the auto enrolment legislation, your responsibilities under the law, or which pension options are likely to suit you and your business.  We offer a free initial consultation, either in our offices in Swansea, Haverfordwest and Pembroke, or at your business premises. 

If you would like independent and impartial advice on any aspect of financial planning for your business, please contact either Julie Richards or myself on 01792 410103 or pensions@bevanbuckland.co.uk
