Sage 50 Payroll: Auto Enrolment

Auto Enrolment is a set of duties to make sure all eligible employees automatically become members of a qualifying pension scheme with a high enough level of contributions.  This means new responsibility for the employer such as:

  Sage 50 Payroll: Auto Enrolment
    Bullet Point  Workforce assessment
    Bullet Point  Provision & Auto Enrolment into a qualifying scheme
    Bullet Point  Facilitating opting out and refunds
    Bullet Point  Record Keeping 

Under Auto Enrolment the employer must contribute towards their employee’s pensions scheme and the minimum contribution amounts for both the employer and the employee are being phased in gradually.

This new legislation will make a big change to the way you manage your employee’s pensions; and the legislation carries with it a significant amount of administrative obligations.  


Time Frames

Employers must commence with Auto Enrolment responsibilities from your staging date.  A staging date is defined by the number of employees in a business PAYE scheme, as at 1st April 2012.

Contact CentrePoint Software on 020 7831 3050 to find out when your staging date is.
