Half a million more SMEs hit by auto-enrolment than expected

24th July, 2015

The Pension Regulator is predicting that 1.8m small and micro businesses will have auto-enrolment duties – an increase of 500,000 on its previous estimate.

The Pension Regulator, the body that is responsible for ensuring that all businesses comply with the new workplace pension rules, which are known as ‘auto-enrolment’, released its annual report earlier this month (July 2015).

In this report, it details how the summer of 2017 will see around 350,000 small employers go through the auto-enrolment process, compared to earlier predictions of a peak of around 220,000 in mid-2016.

It seems that a more benign economy is to ‘blame’ for the rise: fewer companies going out of business and more start-ups being registered.

Don’t get left behind in the auto-enrolment rush

The upshot of the pending auto-enrolment rush is that you need to be thinking ahead. Make sure your business isn’t at the back of the pecking order when it comes to choosing a pension scheme or finding an adviser to help you through the process.
