Awareness in auto-enrolment enforcements

Reports are showing that many businesses are failing to comply to their auto enrolment obligations.

In some cases responsibilities can sometimes be accidentally ignored by employers, thus being the main reason that they do not understand what it means to them.

Enforcement action has been taken against businesses that have failed to meet their pension auto-enrolment requirements. These figures are still on the rise according to the Pensions Regulator.

Why not outsource to SFB’s payroll team to avoid the unnecessary stress? Our knowledge and expertise will ensure you are fully compliant and will avoid any fines. Call Peter Johns today on (024) 7638 4171 for a FREE consultation.

Martin has never had the desire to climb Kilimanjaro and still doesn’t!

His biggest motivation for doing so is to raise money for a charity very close to his heart “Georgie’s Gift”,  which was set up last year by two of his closest friends who sadly lost their 23 month old daughter to meningitis.
