The auto-enrolment solution for Northern Ireland

Start-ups alerted to instant pension duties

Posted in General News and Newsletters

New businesses starting up from October 2017 are being warned they will have instant pension duties once they take on a member of staff.

Rather than having a set staging date, their auto-enrolment duties- to assess all workers, communicate with them, and include eligible employees in a suitable scheme- will start as soon as they employ anyone. The start date will no longer be tied to the PAYE date.
