Employment Law and Auto Enrolment Seminars August/September 2015


TAP Assist and Peninsula Business Services Seminars

Our partnership with Peninsula Business Services continues to flourish as the worlds of Employment Law and Auto Enrolment are inextricably linked. There are factors within Auto Enrolment which necessitate employment contracts being reviewed and possibly changed and we are therefore continuing our work with Peninsula in holding joint free seminars for business owners and Directors.

3 Articles You Should Read from Last Week – Ending 24.01.14

Auto Enrolment News – 3 Articles You Should Read
Last week was an interesting one in terms of Auto Enrolment news.  A number of articles were published that really caught the eye and invoked a strong reaction from the team!  Something tells me that there will be follow up to these articles in the shape of more thorough blog posts so watch this space for our opinions on here.

The 3 articles in the firing line are:

Government confirms delay to pension charges cap
Government targets auto-enrol ‘middleware’ in new charges clampdown
Providers ‘misleading’ advisers on auto-enrolment capacity

Do you have any thoughts and opinions on these articles and how they affect Advisers and their clients?  All comments are much appreciated.


4 Things You Should Know From Last Week – Ending 15.11.13

A good mix of articles this week looking at Auto Enrolment from a number of different perspectives.  Interestingly, there is a strong theme suggesting the main underlying problem is still the lack of understanding and education around the whole process.  This is true of both Advisers and employers.  The majority seem to still be underestimating the scale of what is involved, not just to become compliant but to manage the process on an ongoing basis.

Auto Enrolment Orphan’ Numbers Set to Soar As Capacity Crunch Takes its Toll
Five adviser concerns on an auto-enrolment charge cap
Auto-enrolment triggers cash flow concerns for SMEs
Employers would support group risk auto-enrolment
