Read on to find out about our MK50 plans for all Milton Keynes business owners
As 2017 is now well and truly underway, many businesses have started to plan their goals for the year ahead and put objectives into place. For many small enterprises, one of the biggest goals of the year should be to ensure their business gets its auto-enrolment sorted, and to create a workplace pension scheme.
It is time to grab 2017 by the reins and start checking those boxes off of your ‘to do’ list. Auto-enrolling your employees into a workplace pension scheme is mandatory, and if you do not comply by your staging date (for many not using a PAYE program, this is 01 April 2017) you can face harsh penalties and fines. Don’t put it off – sort this out today.
Why Do I Need To Think About A Workplace Pension Scheme Now?
For many large and medium-sized enterprises, they have already set up their workplace pension schemes over the past few years. That said, the staging dates (the date when your automatic enrolment duties come into effect) for many small businesses are spread throughout 2017.
For example, if you do not pay your staff through a PAYE scheme, then your staging date is set to the default of 01 April 2017. Most businesses should be aware by now of their staging dates. However, if you’re unsure of the date, then you can use your PAYE reference on the following website to find out your date: http://www.thepensionsregulator.gov.uk/employers/staging-date.aspx.
2017 Is A Busy Year For Pensions
With an estimated 554,000 small and micro-businesses required to set up a workplace pension scheme this year, 2017 will be a busy time for their business advisors and accountants.
Many new ventures established this year, will all also need workplace pension schemes. With these numbers in mind, it is best to act fast in order to ensure that your business gets the support it needs. Acting now is your best bet if you want to make certain that you and your employees are completely ready by your staging date.
So, if you’re baffled by what you need to do to prepare your small business for automatic enrolment, it’s best to seek help as soon as possible. That way, you can tick pensions off of your ‘to do’ list and get back to the core responsibilities of running your business.
