Jelf Employee Benefits has launched a new discounted membership benefit for the Pet Industry Federation (PIF) to help its members comply with their forthcoming Pension Auto Enrolment duties that require all employers to have a pension scheme in place for their staff.
Jelf offers a choice of two support Auto Enrolment packages which will help PIF member businesses negotiate the minefield of Pension Auto Enrolment and ensure that they correctly comply with the Pension Regulator’s legislation. With an offer of 5% discount off the standard cost of Jelf’s Auto Enrolment support, PIF members are able to access high-quality streamlined guidance and information to help them establish which option is most suitable for their business.
Features covered within the package include both initial consultancy and ongoing technical support to make sure things remain on track with frequently changing pension and Auto Enrolment issues.
Ann Barker, Business Development Manager for Jelf Employee Benefits said: “Auto Enrolment legislation is complex and there are strict rules that must be adhered to. For businesses, making sense of the requirements and dealing with the formalities can be time consuming but it is vital to get it right. One of the most important points is to plan early and we are urging companies to talk to experts at the earliest opportunity.”
Nigel Baker, PIF Chief Executive said: ‘Many businesses could be unaware of their need to comply with new pensions laws. There can be heavy fines if you fail to meet the Government’s Auto Enrolment deadlines, something which can be easily overlooked if your priority is running your business and keeping your clients happy. There are certain deadlines which small businesses will need to hit, so our new arrangement with Jelf has arrived just at the right time. We’d urge our members to speak to Jelf and find out more’.
