Even those employing just one person may need to provide a pension scheme

Pension auto-enrolment has arrived, under which almost all employers in the UK will need to provide an occupational pension scheme for their employees, and contribute to it.

Article originally taken from ‘Business Matters – The UK’s leading SME Business Magazine and was posted on  18/08/2015 and reposted by iQ Business Solutions – Small Business Payroll, Auto-Enrolment & Bookkeeping Solutions – ‘Working Smarter for You!’

The new Auto-Enrolment laws will apply to many people who may not think of themselves as employers, for example individuals that employ domestic assistants such as nannies, or carers for elderly or disabled relatives. Sole traders and partnerships that employ anyone, even just one individual, such as a personal assistant, also need to take careful note of their obligations.

By Ian Quill, posted in Auto-enrolment, Pensions, 01 Jun 2015

Up to 100,000 people who employ personal carers are being warned that they may now be legally liable to pay them pension contributions. From 1 June, small businesses employing up to 30 staff will gradually be obliged to offer their staff pensions, under the auto-enrolment programme.

That includes people who only employ one person, such as a carer or a nanny. The Pensions Regulator, which oversees the programme, says those who do not comply could receive a fine of £400.

However, it says it is working with 200 support organisations to make sure people get proper advice. Under auto enrolment, all employees over the age of 22 who earn more than £10,000 a year will now have the right to a workplace pension – unless they decide to opt out.
