If you employ staff, whether it is one person or more you need to be aware of the new law, which states that you must automatically, enrol workers into a workplace pension scheme. If your employees fit the following criteria, they will need to be automatically enrolled:

·       Be aged between 22 and state pension age

·       Must earn more than £10,000 a year

·       Must work within the UK

Be prepared and know your staging date. This is the date auto-enrolment should be in place for your business to ensure compliance.  With your PAYE reference number to hand it’s really easy to find out your staging date by clicking here.

Act now to ensure that you are compliant.  All employers have been advised to start preparation at least 12 months before their staging date.
