Auto Enrolment Services
Auto Enrolment was introduced to make sure people are saving for their future pension rather than getting to retirement and having to live their champagne lifestyle on a lemonade budget.
All employers should have an auto-enrolment scheme in place by law, so don’t ignore it. Let our dazzle of online accountants help your business.
What is Auto Enrolment?
If you have employees, then you may be required to run an Auto Enrolment pension scheme. In simple terms, Auto Enrolment is a pension pot, which you as the employer, and your employee, both pay into. This is a one-way street until the employee reaches retirement age when they can access their money
All employees who meet the following criteria need to be enrolled:
- Aged between 22 and State Pension age
- Earn more than £10,000 a year
- Work in the UK
The current rates, (from April 2020), are a minimum of 5% for employees plus 3% for employers.
How do you set up an Auto Enrolment scheme?
If you have employees and you haven’t yet got an auto enrolment scheme in place, then get in touch. Let our accounting experts help you to get a scheme set up today.
There are penalties from the Pensions Regulator if you get this wrong, so don’t delay – we are here, waiting to help.
What happens if my employee doesn’t want a pension?
Even if all of your employees don’t want a pension, you still need a scheme in place.
Every employee who meets the criteria above will be ‘auto enrolled’. They will receive a welcome pack from the pension company before the contributions start and at this point, they can ‘opt out’.
