Recent communications from The Pensions Regulator have highlighted something that perhaps many business owners do not currently have high on their radar at present. That is the need, even in these difficult times, to still fully comply with the Auto Enrolment rules for workplace pensions. Unfortunately the rules still apply even if you are currently furloughing staff under the governments coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.
The Pensions Regulator has produced specific guidance for employers on its web site www.thepensionsregualtor.gov.uk and this gives a good range of information that can help you ensure that your obligations are met. We also remain open during the current lock down environment and are happy to help where we can. If you do have any questions, I would suggest you please contact us via e-mail in the first instance and we can then call you to discuss things further.
