Pension Auto-Enrolment Latest News & Advice

Posted on 27/07/2015 by Jannine Smart in Employment Law Upate

Question: The 1st June 2015 was described as ‘Test tranche for less than 30 members’ what does this mean? Answer: “The Pensions Regulator (tPR) is running a test tranche of smaller employers from 1st June to see how they cope and look at any problems that may arise ready for the vast majority that start later this year. Businesses with fewer than 49 employees will now begin to be staged in between June 2015 and April 2017, instead of the previous timing (which would have started during 2014). These small employers will be split between those with 30 or more employees (who will be staged between August 2015 and October 2015) and those with fewer than 30 (who, apart from a test tranche in June 2015, will not be staged until January 2016). Even if a Company is not in the test tranche, they still need to plan and budget for how they will comply with their new duties. Employers that are part of a group should be aware, as the whole group will be staged in together, meaning they will be staged in early (at the same time as the largest PAYE group). Any seasonal businesses who are allocated a date during the peak of their activity can bring forward their staging date to avoid dealing with the additional administration and employee communications/queries at their busiest time of year.
