The Pensions Regulator gets organised....
The robinson+co Payroll Team recently contacted all employer clients with news about “Auto Enrolment” – which is the biggest change to pension saving in a generation; click here to see our dedicated page to this very important change.
Many employers have a “Staging Date” (the date at which they have to comply with the new rules) in the second half of 2016, or even 2017 and 2018.
Despite this, The Pensions Regulator, the government agency tasked with the compliance of the new rules, is contacting all employers over the next few months to obtain up to date contact details.
This is to ensure that important information about Auto Enrolment goes to the correct person in the organisation.
It is important to not ignore these letters – see below for an example so you know what to look for; if nothing else forward the letter to us as, in the majority of case, we are recommending that you use our details as your key contact. This means that we can help you to comply with the rules and avoid potential heavy penalties.
