Help is on hand for SMEs with Auto Enrolment
Carpenter Box Wealth Management LLP is holding four Essential Auto Enrolment Breakfast seminars during 2016, to help SMEs meet the Government’s deadline for Auto Enrolment implementation of 1 April 2017.
Many companies have already gone through this process, introduced by the Government’s reforms to workplace pensions in October 2012, requiring every employer to automatically enrol eligible workers into a qualifying pension scheme, and make regular contributions.
Roy Thompson, Associate at Carpenter Box Wealth Management explains the purpose of the events: “Essentially, the free breakfast seminars aim to help small and medium sized businesses to understand what they have to do to satisfy the legislation, which can quickly become more complicated than first thought. Our approach is to take the time burden away from employers by helping them to set up their schemes ensuring they comply with the relevant legislation”.
Carpenter Box Wealth Management provides three service options for SMEs ranging from the Essential option, walking companies through the process if they want to implement Auto Enrolment themselves, to the Self-Managed option, involving the installation of Auto Enrolment project management software, to the final Managed Option where Carpenter Box Wealth Management undertakes the whole process leaving the business to concentrate on what it does best.
The breakfast seminars will be held between 8am and 9.30am at Carpenter Box’s head office in Worthing on 29 April, 24 June, 2 September and 28 October. If you would like to register for any of the events, you can book online at http://www.carpenterbox.com/autoenrol-breakfast/ or contact Rachael Topping at Carpenter Box on 01903 234094.
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
