Small Business Auto Enrolment UK

Part of the Charterhouse accountancy group



Unlike other advisers and Insurance companies your Auto Enrolment/workplace Pension scheme is provided completely free
of charge.

One of the major challenges facing owners of small businesses is the new Auto-Enrolment pension legislation. You may by now have received a letter from the Pensions Regulator, asking you to nominate a contact within your business. Ignore this letter at your peril, as the Pension Regulator can and will enforce fines against non-compliant businesses.

Failure to comply with a statutory notice could leave you facing a £400 fine, and daily fines of up to £10,000.With over 500,000 small business employers having to set up schemes between February 2016 and February 2018 you could find yourself at the end of a very long queue with no guarantee that you will be able to set up your scheme before your “staging date”.

What is Auto-Enrolment?

Automatic enrolment will place new responsibilities on you and your business to automatically enrol your workers into a workplace pension scheme. This will entail:

  • Assessing the types of workers in your business.

  • Providing a qualified automatic enrolment pension scheme for the relevant workers

  • Writing to all applicable works outlining what automatic enrolment into the workplace pension will mean for them.

  • Automatically enrolling all eligible jobholders into the scheme and paid employee contributions.

  • Registering with the pensions regulator and be responsible for keeping records.

By your staging date (find out yours here) you must have a suitable pension scheme to enrol your eligible workers into. Once you have enrolled any eligible workers you must then pay pension contributions for them via your business payroll.
