Workplace Pension Reform Update – August 2012

31 Jul 2012

For the past 18 months Wingate Benefit Solutions has been recommending that businesses familiarise themselves with the changes and responsibilities being introduced under the Workplace Pension Reforms which apply from October 2012.

In reality, most businesses will not be affected by the new legislation straight away but with our assistance, some important planning can be done now to minimise the administrative and financial burden at the time the reforms apply to your business.

How can Wingate help?

By spending time with you to understand your current situation and collecting very basic information from you, Wingate Benefit Solutions can prepare and produce a personalised Workplace Pension Reforms Workforce Assessment Report for your management team to review and consider so that the necessary planning can take place.

This report will make reference to:

  • When your staging date will be
  • What you will need to do now, at your staging and after your staging date
  • How to assess your workforce
  • What will happen if you do nothing
  • Your options for calculating pension contributions
  • Certification
  • Other things you will need to think about
