If you are an employer and you want to learn more about pensions in your business – both about keeping up with your automatic enrolment duties, and also about how you can help to keep your staff protected from pension scams, then the information provided below will help.
Re-enrolment and Re-declaration - A two-stage process
Over the coming months hundreds of thousands of small employers will reach their re-enrolment deadlines. Make sure you know what you need to do. Whether or not you have staff that need to be put back into your workplace pension, you must complete and submit a redeclaration of compliance to The Pensions Regulator (TPR)
Tax Relief and Workplace Pensions
TPR reminds employers that there are two tax relief arrangements: RAS or NPA. They have useful information and examples on their website that will help you to decide which pension scheme to use.
Once you have set up a pension scheme and put your eligible staff into it, your legal duties don’t end there. All employers must continue to make the payments that are due into the scheme every time payroll is run. It is important you do this, as failure to make the correct payments is likely to lead to enforcement action by The Pensions Regulator (TPR). Don’t risk a fine
