The pensions landscape in the UK is changing dramatically. From 2012, the Government is implementing changes to pensions legislation to help make it easier for more people to save for retirement.
Between 2012 and 2017 all employers will have to automatically enrol all eligible employees into a qualifying pension scheme and make contributions to their plan. Employers will have additional regulatory requirements to be aware of and non-compliance could result in fines. The Government has recently announced a revised timetable for auto enrolment (Feb 2012) and the dates that are now applicable are:
|Number of PAYE employees||From||To|
|250+||1 October 2012||1 February 2014|
|50 to 249||1 April 2014||1 April 2015|
|Test tranche for less than 30||1 June 2015||30 June 2015|
|30 to 49||1 August 2015||1 October 2015|
|Less than 30||1 January 2016||1 April 2017|
This new service takes advantage of the flexibility and choice available within the new rules, enabling voluntary and community sector employers to offer a comprehensive workplace savings solution that complies with the new legislations, is valued by employees and is available at a competitive price usually only available for large organisations.
The new workplace pension service is applicable to both small organisations looking to offer their employees a pension for the first time to meet legislative requirements, as well as larger organisations who are looking to review their existing pension arrangements to see if they can provide better value and greater flexibility to their employees.
