Auto Enrolment



What is automatic enrolment?

UK businesses who employ one or more workers have to put them into a pension scheme, if they meet certain criteria.

Auto Enrolment will have an effect on all businesses whether they employ just 1 person or 1000. The Government’s desire for self-sufficiency in workplace pensions resulted in Auto Enrolment legislation being executed. The largest companies were required to establish their compliant schemes from October 2012, with a series of staging dates being introduced determined by the number of employees in a company over the next few years. All eligible workers will need to be automatically enrolled into a Qualifying Workplace Pension Scheme with mandatory minimum contributions from the employer and the employee, the only criteria is when and how much!

It is estimated that at its peak there will be over 200,000 businesses trying to “stage” (set up their own scheme) in the same quarter. All businesses will all be required to have a qualifying workplace pension scheme in place and will be required to have a system capable of administering employee contributions and benefits. In addition businesses must maintain adequate records and meet all the requirements of the Pensions Regulator.

The resources available to help businesses deliver against their requirements are going to become increasingly in demand and possibly scarce and that will mean that the price for support or assistance may well rise. This is described as a predicted “Capacity Crunch” and is a very serious matter that should not be underestimated by employers. STAFFPLAN is unique in that it allows the employer to set up a qualifying scheme well in advance of the staging date with significant discounts on the implementation fees.

It is essential for all Businesses to be prepared, to ensure the changes required to internal systems are identified and that all parties, including any HR and/or payroll functions fully understand what is required of them. Employers need to fully understand their duties associated with these new pension requirements. They could be potentially time consuming, complex to manage and costly to administer. STAFFPLAN has been designed to meet all of your needs in providing a comprehensive auto enrollment solution.

An action plan for Employers is essential and Staff Plan is available to assist all businesses, irrespective of their size or structure, in meeting their obligations.
