Pension & Auto-enrolment
All UK employers are now legally required to operate a pension scheme for there employees, whether the employees are eligible for automatic enrolment or not. As an employer your employees can still choose to join a pension scheme if they so want to and you as the employer can’t refuse them. However, until the employee reaches the auto enrolment earnings you don’t have to contribute to the employees pension.
