The law on workplace pensions has changed. Under the Pensions Act 2008, every employer in the UK must put certain staff into a pension scheme and contribute towards it.
Whether you're a hairdresser, an architect or employ a personal care assistant, if you employ at least one person you are an employer and you have certain legal duties.
The Pensions Regulator offer a “Duties Checker” so you can check what you need to do and by when. This all depends on your circumstances and those of your staff.
There are many different pensions schemes available, and if you would like to discuss this in more detail, we can point you towards a pension specialist who will be able to help you determine which scheme is best for your business and employees.
