Startup businesses who employ staff for the first time from 1 October 2017 are now subject to the pensions auto-enrolment regime.  The practical consequence is that new businesses must take steps to automatically enrol employees into a pension scheme from the day they start work, or alternatively apply a postponement period of up to 3 months in respect of them before starting to make contributions. 

If you are a new business and are required to auto-enrol staff for the first time, our Head of Pensions, Andrew Campbell,  would be happy to assist you with any questions you may have.
