Online Course on Automatic Enrolment
– 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 new 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.
Auto Enrolment: The accountant’s guide enables the learner to:
• Understand the background and need for automatic enrolment
• Identify the effects on both employers and employees
• Understand how to comply with the legislation
• Understand some of the key aspects to ensuring automatic enrolment is a success
