Get Pension Ready

New employer legislation on its way

October 2012 seems like a long way off doesn’t it.  But the pension reform that come into force next year could have a major financial impact on your business and you need to start thinking about how to deal with it today.

By this time next year all businesses will have to enrol qualifying employees into a pension scheme and start making contributions on their employees behalf.  The standard rate is 1% increasing to 3% by 2017, although the starting point and rate of increase may be staggered for smaller companies.  In addition there will be admin costs to pay and a management overhead to consider.
