How can I stay compliant with workplace pensions?

Providing a workplace pensions scheme, even if you only have one employee, is a legal requirement and you could face fines from The Pensions Regulator if you don’t carry out your duties correctly. You’re required to set up a qualifying workplace pension scheme, enrol any staff that are eligible, and enable both employer and employee contributions into it. 

From staying organised with your paperwork to knowing how to assess your employees, our pensions experts walk you through how you can stay on top of your pensions responsibilities as an employer. 

Worried about your compliance or automatic enrolment duties? Our experts have helped thousands of small businesses to set up their schemes and supported many more in complying with legislation. 

How much do employers have to pay into workplace pensions?

It’s not just your employees who pay into their pension pots – you must make contributions too, and it’s important to stay on top of this. You should have systems in place to ensure contributions are paid accurately and on time. 

The minimum employer contribution is 3 per cent, with your employee paying 5 per cent to meet the 8 per cent total.

Do FSB Workplace Pensions and Payroll offer personal or private pensions?

No, our pensions services are dedicated to workplace pensions for our members.
