From automatic enrolment to the lifetime allowance, it can be difficult to keep up with the many changes to pensions legislation – and an even bigger challenge to ensure your business remains compliant.
With the demise of defined benefit pensions, the UK pensions landscape is at a ‘crossroads’ in its evolution. At this important point, there is a strong focus on balancing the benefits and risks of pension provision, with particular attention being paid to how effectively employers and trustees meet their responsibilities.
This can place considerable pressure on businesses and is an area that The Pensions Regulator monitors closely – you need to be confident that the decisions you make are the right ones for your business and your employees.
Our pensions governance service has been developed in line with The Pensions Regulator’s six principles of good scheme governance so that you can be confident your scheme is well managed and compliant.

If your income is more than £110,000 you could be in danger of inadvertently exceeding the annual pension allowance and face unexpected tax charges.
