All change… again… for pensions

Just as everyone thought they were getting to know what the plan was for Auto Enrolment and pensions, the Pension Regulator instigated changes to their system for when an employer’s duty begins. With effect from 1 October 2017, employers legal duties begin on the day their first member of staff starts work.

In plain English this means: If you become an employer for the first time on or after 1 October 2017, you will, immediately, have legal duties for that new member of staff – and they apply from the first day the member of staff started working for you. When you are about to employ someone, for the first time, you need to get ready for automatic enrolment.

The Pensions Regulator has published a good guidance note on this here. For advice on this and any other related matters you can contact Alison, as well.
