Automatic enrolment doesn’t end on your client’s duties start date – they have ongoing duties.
To ensure employers are complying with their automatic enrolment duties, The Pensions Regulator carries out spot checks around the UK. These spots checks form part of a nationwide enforcement campaign to ensure that employers are meeting their automatic duties correctly
TPR has published a regional press release on AE spot checks - TPR begins pre-Christmas spot checks on South of England employers. This will be promoted through local media within the Sussex, Kent, Surrey and Hampshire areas.
They have so far carried out spot checks in London, Manchester, Birmingham, Sheffield, Edinburgh, Glasgow and South Wales.
If you have clients in these areas, for whom you carry out auto-enrolment duties, then check that all required processes have been implemented - remember - It's the Law!
