Automatic enrolment - providing a point of contact to The Pensions Regulator

12 June 2015

By the end of the summer, The Pensions Regulator will have written to every employer in the UK to tell them the date at which they need to be ready to enrol their eligible staff into a workplace pension.

The letter also asks employers to nominate primary and secondary contacts, in order that regular and useful information from the regulator can be received in the run up to the date at which your duties begin.

Primary contact

This is the most senior person at the employer who is legally responsible for ensuring compliance with the automatic enrolment duties. In a small business, this is likely to be the business owner.

Secondary contact

This is the person responsible for the practical implementation of automatic enrolment on behalf of the employer. This may be an accountant, bookkeeper, or other business adviser.
