The Pensions Regulator starts spot checks on employers suspected of failing pension duties

19 May 2022

The Pensions Regulator (TPR) is cracking down on pension non-compliance. 

With the removal of covid restrictions earlier this year, full scale inspections have returned to ensure employers are compliant. These spot-check inspections will take place on-site for any employer TPR chooses to inspect all over the UK. Alongside these inspections, TPR receives compliance information from a variety of sources including HMRC, pension schemes and individual whistleblowing reports. Employers who are found to be non-compliant will face financial consequences, and TPR may work with them to assist them with their duties. 

Pension and auto-enrolment compliance is one of the most complex areas of payroll. If you would like to be an expert on this topic, you can sign up to the Automatic enrolment and pensions for payroll training course. You can sit the course online in any month, and the next one you can book is on 22 June 2022.
