Every employer with one or more staff has to put those staff meeting certain criteria into a workplace pension scheme and contribute towards it. It is a mandatory requirement that you set up a company pension scheme regardless of whether your staff ‘say’ they want to be enrolled or not.
There are many considerations when deciding upon which pension provider to assign. Do they charge a set fee? What is the annual management charge? Is the pension transferable? Ultimately will it work for you and your team? Even if you have existing pension scheme in place, it may not comply with the rules of an Auto Enrolment scheme.
