CIPP Survey: Technical Changes to Automatic Enrolment

28 January 2016

The draft regulations look to bring about simplifications to the administration of Automatic Enrolment that have been highlighted by stakeholders as automatic enrolment has evolved. Their aim is to reduce the administration burden, though simplification, for employers.

The survey contains a number of consultation questions which are taken from the consultation paper. We don’t anticipate that all respondents will wish to respond to all questions and so to skip a question and move on to the next relevant question for you is fine. Some of the questions are asking for ‘likely cost’ or ‘administrative savings’ as a result of some of the measures, an estimate is acceptable if you have one to share, if not, please don’t feel you have to enter a figure.

Each section within the survey is headed with an introduction that does no more than give a brief outline of the proposals, for full detail and background please see the consultation paper and draft regulations.

We anticipate that many of you will be very pleased with some, if not all, of the proposals as you have been telling us about your need for such simplifications for some time, we hope that these regulations, that are due to come in to force 6 April 2016, will have come in time to reduce the administrative burden on you, your employer, your business and/or your clients.

Thank you for your time in completing this survey, we anticipate it will take approximately 15 – 20 minutes. The survey will close on 8 February 2016.
