3 Caveat Goddard Perry Consulting (GPC) normally present:

4 Who are Goddard Perry ? Leading independent pensions solutions providers Developing Master Trusts since experts in this field SALVUS centralised Master Trust scheme, compliant with Pensions Act 2008 Founder member of Master Trust Association Goddard Perry contact details :

5 Background Auto enrolment is being introduced to encourage people to take responsibility for their own retirement savings as: Increasing longevity of life Retreating state role Under saving for retirement in general Complexity of current pensions Note: Basic state pension is currently £ per week

6 Why save? You need capital to generate retirement income
Age 32 State Pension Age 67 5% investment return £25,000 salary assumed 2% rise in salaries Contribution Projected Fund 2% (1% & 1%) £53,014 6% (3% & 3%) £159,041 10% (5% & 5%) £265,069

7 Company schemes At October 2013:
69% of companies with employees had no pension scheme 93% of companies with 1-5 employees had no pension scheme Auto Enrolment: new employer duties The Pensions Act 2008 Section (3)2 “The employer must make prescribed arrangements by which the jobholder becomes an active member of an automatic enrolment scheme”

8 What are the Employers’ duties ? Employers must.....
Have a qualifying pension scheme Auto enrol some employees and Enrol other employees into an “ Automatic Enrolment Scheme” Pay contributions within 3 months of becoming eligible Comply ! – there are daily fines by tPR if you don’t

9 Auto enrolment basic rules: for eligible jobholders
If you are 22 or over, earning more than £10,000 a year, you need to be enrolled into a scheme from the employers staging date Minimum employee contributions will gradually increase to 4% of pay after tax, topped up with 1% tax relief by the government

10 Auto enrolment The employer is required to “Enrol” all eligible jobholders Eligible jobholders can then “Opt out” within 30 days if they do not wish to be in the your company pension scheme If eligible jobholders “Opt out”, the employer has to re-enrol them again 3 years later The Eligible jobholder again has the option to “Opt out”

11 Auto enrolment contributions
The minimum mandatory contributions from the Staging Date, if you are in the scheme, will be: * Less tax relief Employee pays * Employers From Staging Date 1 % From 1st October 2017 3 % 2 % From 1st October 2018 5 %

12 Auto enrolment issues How to assess staff e.g. part time & commission employees ? Practicalities of HR, Payroll & Pension Provider interfaces Tracking & complying with Auto enrolment rules Communicating with employees Reporting to the Pensions Regulator As per the letter from the Pensions Regulator – the letter states “there may be consequences if you do not comply including fines and/or prosecutions”.

13 Need to plan ! When is your staging date?
Who will be your pension provider? How will you assess workers? Access to AE “middleware” ? Existing arrangements (if any !) may not work…your current provider may decline AE members and /or not provide “middleware”
