Qualifying Workplace Pension Schemes & Auto-Enrolment
Auto-enrolment is now compulsory for almost every employer in the UK. Many businesses have passed their staging dates and have schemes in place but there are still many smaller businesses in the preparatory stages. We work closely with employers of all sizes and types to get the right scheme in place.
There are a wide range of different workplace pension scheme options in the current market place ranging from schemes provided by the large insurance companies to the Government’s own multi-employer scheme, NEST. We will help you select the most appropriate scheme for your business.
As an alternative, we have access to a dedicated master trust scheme that can be used by employers of all sizes and types. This flexible and employer-friendly scheme is offered with our ongoing Group Pension service to provide an all-encompassing proposition for employers.
If you are looking for a starting point for your employee scheme, come and talk to us.
Employers can be liable to substantial fines if they fail to meet their auto-enrolment obligations. The S&P Workplace Pension solution meets the requirements of the Pension Regulator, and gives you the reassurance that you are complying with the rules.
If you are looking to introduce a more extensive staff pension scheme, we are happy to meet with you to discuss your needs, obtain the necessary quotations and facilitate any transfers needed.
Self-invested pension schemes for directors or business owners can offer additional features such as the ability to hold the company’s premises within the pension scheme and, in some circumstances, the ability to loan funds back to the company.
We will also ensure that Directors’ Pay and Pension Strategies take account of any Group Life or Pension Death Benefits that might trigger later Lifetime Allowance or Inheritance Tax charges.
Whatever your group pension scheme needs, we can help you sift through all the possible solutions to find the right one for your business.
