The Pension Regulator (tPR) has announced a new crackdown on employers who are avoiding their pension auto enrolment pension duties.
Those suspected of breaking the law will be targeted with short notice inspections and tPR says it is using data to pinpoint specific employers who are failing to enrol staff into a pension scheme, or who make no, or incorrect pension contributions.
These inspections, which will start immediately, are mandatory for employers to take part. Failing to provide information, or obstructing an inspector are criminal offences and could result in fines or court action.
If you are worried about your own auto-enrolment arrangements, please don’t hesitate to give us a call for an informal chat.
