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.
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"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."
"Since joining BHBPA we have found it to be a dynamic and vibrant members’ organisation, with excellent, regular and informative meetings.
