What should I do about auto-enrolment?

Fact: Auto enrolment is happening, and regardless of any rights, wrongs, or opinions, it won’t be reversed.

You need to be sure of your business obligations. For example, did you realise that you have to comply even if you have a single employee? That it includes some micro businesses comprising only directors and a secretary? Do you understand the specific staging criteria you have to meet, and the automatic fine systems that will catch those that don’t?

There is helpful information on the gov.uk websites and a web search will uncover a tonne of information, but the question remains; how will you turn this information into the necessary actions?

Undoubtedly, it will take you time and effort to achieve the best business solution for your particular circumstances and meet the staging criteria as laid down by the pensions regulator, but I know how you can short-cut the learning process in just 90 minutes. And it won’t cost you a penny.
