Ask the Expert with Tony Bullock

Managing Partner, Dutton Moore Chartered Accountants & Business Advisers

We talk to Tony Bullock, Managing Partner at Dutton Moore Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers, about how to prepare for the forthcoming changes in employee pension provision and find out your obligations.

Employers cannot delay with finding out about their obligations when it comes to auto-enrolment. Between now and 2018, every employer in the UK will need to have a workplace pension scheme in place and start enrolling workers. Many will be automatically enrolled and others will need to be enrolled if they request it.

The new ‘automatic enrolment’ law means that every employer must automatically enroll workers into a workplace pension scheme if they:

  • are aged between 22 and State Pension age
  • earn more than £9,440 a year
  • Work in the UK.

The requirements are being phased in over the next couple of years and will include 1.2 million employers and 11million eligible workers – so you need to be sure of your staging date.

If you run a business you will need to make sure you’re ready to tackle tasks like keeping track of who needs to be automatically enrolled and making regular pension contributions.

Your accountant should be able to assist, advise and help you with the process. At Dutton Moore we understand what you need to do to get ready and we provide full payroll services through our sister company IT Forward Ltd to make your job easier.
