The Pensions Act

From 1st October 2012, changes to pensions law have affected all employers with at least one worker in the UK. It is now compulsory to automatically enroll all eligible jobholders into a workplace pension scheme. The employer responsibilities will be introduced in stages over 4 years, the process starting in October 2012 through to September 2016.

Each employer will be allocated a date from when the duties will first apply to them, known as their ‘staging date.’  Scottish Golf has produced a helpful advice note on the subject, and encourage all golf clubs to digest this document, and follow the links to further assistance.
