Remember - Auto-Enrolment is not just for Christmas...
Interview with Penguin Nick Lately, we have been profiling some of the ‘penguins’ who work for Carey Corporate Pensions, letting our clients know all about their unique personalities and their roles at the company. We like to call our pensions specialists penguins because we know that they can help you navigate through the often sketchy, iceberg prone waters of retirement planning, workplace pensions and auto-enrolment. Today we are talking to one of our technical penguins, Nick.
This month we are speaking with Sharon, one of our team “Penguins” at Carey Corporate Pensions UK Ltd.
Meet Chris, the Systems Penguin for Carey Corporate Pensions Ltd.
If you are a small business owner in the UK, by now you have heard about the new requirements for workplace pension schemes launched across the country. For the first time, those who own businesses of any size will be required to enrol their employees in mandatory pension schemes.
Over half of the British population admits to either not saving for a pensions or not saving enough for retirement...
The recent changes to the UK pension schemes mean that clear and effective communication in the workplace is more important than ever. As the owner or manager of a small to medium sized business, it is integral that you provide comprehensive information to all of your employees about their pension options.
Providing pensions to the workforce can prove to be tricky for businesses of any size company. Legally, an employer must auto-enrol eligible workers into a pension plan at their staging date, which continue to be rolled out until 2019. Businesses must remember that failure to comply with this legislation could lead to them having to face considerable fines for failing to follow the rules in a timely fashion.
As we head into the age of mandatory workplace pensions, it is imperative that you as an employer are on top of this important task. If you neglect to implement a workplace pension scheme before your set deadline, you can face harsh financial penalties that could spell the end of your business.
If the idea of calculating your pension payments, optimising your investment strategies and assessing your risks sounds boring – well, you’re not alone!
