Auto Enrolment

The introduction of ‘auto enrolment’ from October 2012 imposed a whole new set of pension requirements, requiring all employers of any size to put employees into a pension scheme and make contributions in respect of them. The requirements, rolling out between 2012 and 2017, covered the largest employers first, with smaller employers – including private individuals – commencing during the later stages. For most employers, it is not the cost of contributions which is challenging so much as the administrative complexity involved.

 

The team at ARC Pensions Law has been advising on auto enrolment since its inception. We can guide you through crucial questions such as:

  • Who should you auto enrol? The rules around identifying the relevant employees are very complex and may need to be tailored for your business.
  • How much money can and should you contribute? There are a range of options and we can help you pinpoint what would work best for your workforce.
  • Where should the contributions be made? With our help, you can go through the right process and protect against problems from employees objecting to your choice.
  • What do you tell employees? Communications can be the key to successful auto enrolment, and we can provide clear and complete communications that comply with the legal requirements whilst ensuring that your employees understand what is happening.

Whether you have been operating pension schemes for years or are a novice in the area, our helpful, pragmatic assistance will ensure that you navigate the auto enrolment requirements effectively and successfully.
