Pensions Reform – Your Obligation

Company directors and business owners have certain obligations when it comes to providing workplace pension schemes. We can help you meet them.

Since 2012, the UK government has required most employers to auto-enrol eligible staff members into a qualifying workplace pension scheme. If you’re a business owner or company director, you’re obliged to make sure your scheme performs as it should, and that it’s structured properly and legally compliant.

We know it can seem like an onerous task, but we’ll take time to help you understand all the ins and outs of this policy, explaining all the issues so you can be sure you’re working within the rules.

We’ll take a look at your existing schemes and make sure they’re up to scratch, and if there are things you could be doing better, we’ll guide you through the improvements you need to make. We’ll also help you keep your team members fully informed – and if you need us to, we can take a look at your own pension arrangements too.

The value of a pension will be directly linked to the performance of the funds you select and the value can therefore go down as well as up. You may get back less than you invested.

The levels and bases of taxation, and reliefs from taxation, can change at any time. The value of any tax relief depends on individual circumstances.
