Under the Pensions Act 2008, every employer in the UK must put certain staff into a pension scheme and contribute towards it. This is called ‘automatic enrolment’. If you employ at least one person you are an employer and you have certain legal duties. We have chosen Smart Pension Ltd as our preferred provider to ensure that your business is compliant for this process.
