  • Auto Enrolment Pensions

    Auto enrolment was introduced several years ago to encourage as many people as possible to start saving for my retirement. As an employer you will be legally obliged to offer your employees a pension.

    To find out when follow this link to The Pensions Regulator Website 


    Once you know your staging date it is advisable to start planning 12 months in advance of your staging date. Your staging date is the date from which you must start to fulfill strict obligations that The Pensions Regulator places on you as an employer.

    We at JARACS can assist you through this process from start to finish and ensure that you avoid fines and penalties for non compliance.
