Pensions Reform...
Employer essentials

As an employer, it is essential you get things right when employing or recruiting staff and in what could be one of the biggest challenges of the year, pensions auto-enrolment begins.

Auto enrolment (AE) into employer's workplace pension schemes starts its roll out in a matter of months. Adding a whole new level of regulations to pensions, virtually every employer will be effected. The process starts with larger organisations so HR departments and finance departments will need to work closely together to ensure their organisation isn't penalised by the Pensions Regulator.

No business can afford to ignore pensions reform with financial penalties awarded for non compliance.
