Be clear about your services and help your clients avoid a fine
Advisers are being urged to be clear with their clients about the automatic enrolment services they’re providing after our latest automatic enrolment report revealed that employers were fined for failing to complete their declaration of compliance on time. Employers told us that one of the reasons they didn’t complete the declaration was mistakenly thinking their adviser would complete it on their behalf.
We recommend that you set up an agreement with your clients, detailing which automatic enrolment tasks you will and won’t do for them, to avoid confusion and the risk of a fine.
More than 90% of the first 12,000 small and micro employers to reach their staging date have complied with their automatic enrolment duties.
Our Duties Checker is designed especially for small and micro employers to help them work out what they need to do and when to avoid a fine.
Your clients need to know:
Even if they have no staff to enrol, employers still have legal duties, one of which is completing a declaration of compliance with us. You can help them do this here but the final legal responsibility remains with them.
From their staging date, employers have to pay regular contributions to the pensions of staff who have been automatically enrolled or who have opted in. To help your clients work out their costs, and how they will increase in over time, click here.
Your clients' ongoing duties
Once your clients have declared compliance there are four key tasks they need to keep on top of:
Keeping records – including opt-in and opt-out notices, names and addresses of enrolled staff and records of when contributions were paid.
Monitoring the ages and earnings of new and existing staff and checking their automatic enrolment eligibility every month.
Enrolling staff and writing to them about automatic enrolment as they become eligible.
Paying contributions to the pension scheme.
