Workplace pensions – Are you prepared for the 6th April?

From 6 April, by law , the total minimum contributions, including employer and employee payments must be no less than 8% of qualifying earnings . The employer must pay a minimum of 3% with their staff making up the rest of the 8%. Employers can pay more than the 3% minimum contribution , if they so choose. If they do , their staff wont need to pay in as much to meet the total minimum contribution of 8% of qualifying earnings . Employers will need to be ready for this increase, to make sure they’re paying the correct amounts into their staff schemes and their staff will need to be made aware of the resultant deduction that will be made from their salaries.

Outsourcing your payroll to KM Payroll Solutions will give you the  assurance that your payroll responsibilities will be taken care of accurately and on time, and that your business will stay on top of regulations so please do contact us for more information.
