You’re about to face your busiest period yet!
Nearly 600,000 small employers reach their staging date for auto-enrolment during 2016/17, and a further 1.1 million new employers stage in 2017/18. Three in four businesses will turn to you, their trusted business adviser, for help. You will need to have in place a solution – sufficient resources, expertise, experience and insurance to cope with the expected sharp increase in demand.
Advising employers on workplace pension schemes is time consuming, risky and challenging. Business advisers are not, in general, sufficiently expert, experienced or insured to advise on both pensions AND payroll; and in the absence of specialized automated back-office systems, each case can take between 20 and 40 hours to complete. The smallest firm pays on average £440 for this advice. For most business advisers, if you include the smallest firms full in-house solutions just don’t stack up.
