The workplace pension changes are beginning to come into effect for SMEs and employers need to take action.

The Basics:
The new auto-enrolment workplace pension is a government scheme to encourage more employees to pay into a pension. Eligible employees have to be automatically enrolled in the pension scheme by the correct staging date by their employer. To be 'eligible', employees must earn over £10,000, be between 22 and state pension age and normally work in the UK.

If you have employees that are eligible but aren't sure what to do next, contact us and we can guide you through our simple, 3-step process.

  1. Pre Auto Enrolment Planning
  2. Communication and Implementation
  3. On-going Complia nce

There are many different staging dates and it's vital you know when yours is so that you don't risk a fine or penalty.

We believe the key to success is focusing on the areas which are vital for improving your business. 

If you are focusing on these areas it's essential that your Accountant is too. Which this in mind, we have created 5 crucial questions that we regularly answer in client review meetings and that you should be asking your Accountant:

  1. "How can we increase our growth rate?"
  2. "How can we further improve our cashflow?"
  3. "How does our gross profit margin compare to others in our industry?"
  4. "How can we reduce overheads without compromising quality or service?"
  5. "What's the value of our business and how can we increase this over time?"

Curious as to what your answers would be? Get in touch today to find out.

We often find there are three main areas which hold back the growth of many businesses:

  1. Bad debt / slow payment of invoices
  2. Pricing strategy
