Auto Enrolment Pensions

Pensions and Auto Enrolment

What does Auto Enrolment mean for your business?

You must set up a company pension scheme for your employees, and you have to pay into it.

It is run as part of Payroll and needs to be done at least once a month.

It is a hidden tax of 3% which you must contribute so include this in your recruitment costs.

Pension Contributions


Employees have to pay a minimum of 5% of their salary, and you have to COntribute a minimum of 3%.

Our Payroll department can sort this out for you effortlessly.

How employees are added is based on their earnings and age.

If your Employee earns over £10,000 between 22 and state pension age, they are automatically enrolled, and you must contribute to their pension. 


If they earn £5,824 but less than the £10,000, they have not enrolled automatically, but they can choose to “Opt-In”, and you will also have to contribute to the pension.


If your employee earns less than £5,824, they can Opt-in, and it's up to you whether you contribute as well to their pension.

Employees can opt out if they wish but automatically enrol every three years.
