You’ve now doubt heard already that The Pension Regulator (TPR) are not only prosecuting employers for none-compliance of auto-enrolment but they have now started to prosecute employers for giving misleading information too.
After a whistle-blower prompted TPR to investigate into Crest Healthcare they became the first employers to be prosecuted for knowingly providing false information in relation to auto-enrolment in May 2018.
The judge said it was important to show individuals and companies that they would not benefit from avoiding their auto-enrolment responsibilities.
Crest Healthcare were fined £13,000 and ordered to pay £3,404 costs and a £120 victim surcharge.
With Auto-enrolment responsibilities becoming more and more consequential it quite often depends on us as Accountants to ensure our clients are abiding to all their obligations.
By having a payroll company deal with all payroll matters this takes any concern and worries off you, letting you get on with the more important business growth side of your business.
If you are still doing your own payroll then why not ask how cost efficient it would be to have all the payroll and auto enrolment worries taken off you hands.
