Employee Benefits

Auto Enrolment

For 27 years we have been advising directors of companies on how best to provide employee benefits for their staff. This is particularly relevant with the new AUTO ENROLMENT RULES the Government introduced in 2013.

We are able to assist small, medium and larger employers with their employee benefit solutions.

Our auto enrolment solution is unique and extremely cost effective.

The majority of advisers are charging fees for this, however, we feel that in most cases the employer is helping a lot by contributing 3% per annum of eligible pay, as well as paying National Insurance.

We have therefore designed an extremely cost effective scheme for employers.
