The Introduction of Automatic Enrolment
By law, every employer in the UK must put certain staff into a qualifying pension arrangement and contribute towards it. This is called auto-enrolment. Employees can choose to opt out in which case they will not build up any retirement savings and there is no requirement for their employer to pay contributions. If you need a pension arrangement to help you comply with your auto-enrolment duties, you may find this link to the Pension Regulator’s website helpful.
The Scheme is no longer accepting contributions and cannot be used by employers for auto-enrolment.
