Auto-Enrolment (Pensions)

committed to making workplace pensions simple

Grace Bellairs Accountants ensure that you are compliant with auto-enrolment legislation. Employers across the UK are required to automatically enrol certain workers into a qualifying workplace pension scheme and make contributions towards it.


What is Auto-Enrolment?

Auto-enrolment is the process of automatically assessing employees for their eligibility into the workplace pension. By law and under the Pensions Act 2008 all employers with employees that meet the current criteria must enrol them into a workplace pension scheme.

How It Works

What we do for you

Grace Bellairs Accountants can assess you staff at each pay period whilst processing payroll. Should your staff meet the criteria of being aged between 22 and up to state pension age and earning pre-tax either £10,000 per annum, £833 per month or £192 per week, they will be automatically enrolled into your workplace pension.

If you do not have a workplace pension scheme in place, we can assist with setting one up for you using NEST Pensions. Rest assured that all your pension compliance will be explained in full and taken care of every step of the way and that also included submitting your annual declaration of compliance to The Pension Regulator. You can find more information on NEST and TPR


Got a question?

Do I need to operate a workplace pension scheme?

Yes. Under the Pension Act 2008, employers are required to operate a workplace pension scheme should any employees meet the criteria under auto-enrolment. Further information can be found here The Pension Regulator and here NEST Pensions

Can I switch to Grace Bellairs Accountants?

Of Course! We will discuss with you the best time in the year to switch to us. This could be during the financial year should you require, but generally it is best to switch at the end of the financial year.

Does Grace Bellairs Accountants offer fixed fees?

Yes!  All of our fees are agreed with you upfront and are split over 12 equal monthly payments.  These are paid by you via a standing order.  Fees will only change if you change the level of service

Why should I have an accountant?

Whilst it is not a legal requirement to have an accountant file your statutory documents you may wish to consider a few things such as whether you have the time to dedicate to your accounts as any limitation in knowledge will cost you money, accountant’s fees are tax deductible and it is probably best for you to focus on the things that make you money.

Do you offer company secretarial services?

Yes we do. For a flat annual fee of £72 we can offer our address as your registered office. This means that your personal address is not on the public register. We can also provide a company formation service for a one off £150.
