Do you know how Auto Enrolment will affect you?

You may think that auto enrolment doesn’t apply to you, but if your business has employees, then you WILL be required to adhere to the regulations!

Whether you have one employee or 1,000 employees, auto enrolment places significant responsibilities on employers – you will need to set-up and enrol your workers in a pension scheme.

Every employer has a date from when the automatic enrolment duties come into force for their business. This is called an employers ‘staging date’. It’s likely that you’ll have heard from the Pension’s Regulator, but do you know how you will be affected?

Please visit our Auto Enrolment webpage for further details of how SFB can safe you time and simplify the process.

As most businesses stage over the next 18 months, IFA and set up costs may rocket. Avoid extra costs by acting now!

SFB can help YOU through YOUR Auto Enrolment Journey. Call Peter White on (024) 7638 4171 to arrange your FREE consultation.

National Apprenticeship Week in Coventry and Warwickshire

National Apprenticeship Week runs from Monday 9th March 9 to Friday 13th March. Coventry and Warwickshire businesses, colleges and organisations are celebrating with a wide range of events, promoting apprenticeships and the positive impact they have on individuals, businesses and the wider economy.

The Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership (CWLEP) is co-ordinating the highest ever number of activities to mark the week-long promotion of the benefits apprenticeships can bring to businesses however large or small.

Events in Coventry include Midland Group Training Services holding an Open Evening to promote engineering apprenticeships to young people and parents at its Technical Centre in Gulson Road, Stoke, on Tuesday, March 10 between 4pm and 7pm.

Over in Warwickshire, the activities include Warwickshire College Group organising a breakfast event for construction businesses to find out more about hiring apprenticeships on Wednesday, March 11 from 7.30am to 8.30am at Rugby College, Technology Drive, Rugby.

Marion Plant, chairman of the CWLEP Jobs & Skills Business Group and chief executive and principal of North Warwickshire and Hinckley College and South Leicestershire College, said apprenticeships were a valued part of the workforce and more young people as well as businesses were aware of their importance.

She said: “There is no doubt that businesses from SMEs to blue-chip companies place a great deal of emphasis on recruiting apprentices because they are aware of the importance of training the next generation in the skills they need.

“National Apprenticeship Week is focused on urging more small businesses to recruit apprentices, promoting the range and breadth of apprenticeships on offer including those at higher level within global companies and celebrating apprenticeships and the level of success that learners can achieve.
