Can you afford an increase in your staff costs? You may have no choice...
To encourage more people to start saving for their retirement, as early as possible, employers are now compelled by law to enrol, and re-enrol, their workers into a company pension to which they must both contribute.
Nothing to do with pensions is ever simple or inexpensive, and auto-enrolment is no exception. This new legal duty will be phased in from this month. The DWP estimate that between nine and ten million workers will be affected.
Many employers do not know how this will affect them are not prepared for the administrative burden this reform will generate, and are underestimating how long it will take to put processes in place to ensure compliance.
How are you going to pay for the compulsory employer contributions? Will these costs have a bearing on your pay negotiations, and do your employees understand the benefit of the costs they will incur themselves?
Communication to the workforce will play a key part in these changes in preparing for roll-out to ensure smooth administration.
If you want to understand in more detail how these changes might impact your business, then we have arranged a pensions expert to come and present to you at our offices.
This free seminar will cover the legal issues, including assessing eligibility, managing enrolment and re-enrolment, and dealing with opt-outs. Areas you must think through in order to meet your new duties will be discussed.
