– What Accountant’s need to know

Automatic enrolment (or auto-enrolment) is not just an issue for pension experts. It affects many aspects of business including payroll, human resources, legal and finance.

All employers will need to comply, no matter what size, and with the Pensions Regulator ensuring compliance and imposing penalties on those who do not, employers need to act now.

With a shortage of advice available, companies are turning to their accountants for support and advice on how to set up and administer a suitable scheme.

In his this online course, Automatic Enrolment: A Guide for Accountants, Rob Weaver looks at the issue from the perspective of the accountant:
• What do you need to know?
• What advice should you give to your businesses and clients?
• How can you help them to implement the changes smoothly and effectively?

This course focuses on:
• the choices and considerations for employers,
• looks at lessons already learned and
• shares different employer scenarios.
