Auto Enrolment – The Tsunami begins!

As can be seen by the graphic below, “Automatic Enrolment” is now beginning to bite. More and more employers have to comply with the onerous rules of automatically enrolling all eligible workers into a pension scheme:


Some 150,000 employers have their Staging Date in 2016 with 250,000 following in the first 6 months of 2017.

“It is important to be aware of your Staging Date and start planning a couple of months before that,” says Joanne Hagreen, robinson+co’s Auto Enrolment specialist. “We – I and my colleagues in the Payroll Team – can help you in finding out when your Staging Date is, and help you ensure that you met all the obligations that Automatic Enrolment places on an employer.”

A particular administrative burden is the letters that must be sent to employees at various times in the process but Joanne has a bank of the standard letters and can help you ensure the right letter is sent to the right person at the right time. 

“I am helping clients who currently deal with their own payroll, as well as clients who have appointed us to process their regular payroll,” says Joanne, “and can do as much or as little you require.”

Joanne is contacting clients in the 6 weeks before their Staging Date (where we know when this is), but is happy to talk as and when to anyone concerned about the position. She can be contacted on 01900 603623 or joannehagreen@robinsonco.co.uk.
