I was running another seminar on Auto-enrolment for small businesses in conjunction with Business Gateway and Moray Council in Elgin recently and felt it was a useful day for all involved including myself.
I delivered an update on the current pension reforms specifically around the impact on SME employers of pension auto enrolment. Whilst most business owners are now aware of the legislation many are still unsure as to when it will actually affect them, however it was good to hear many delegates now embracing the idea and initiating action.
Business owners are still getting to grips with the details of this legislation but awareness amongst business owners is a lot higher than it was this time last year.
The feedback was again good and I’ll be providing all those in attendance with our Auto Enrolment Initial Assessment report which confirms what employers need to do and by when.
So thanks once again to Business Gateway and Moray Council for having me along and thanks to all those who came.
