You may be being asked by your clients for help with auto enrolment

Automatic enrolment or auto enrolment began in October 2012 and means that all employers, no matter the size, will need to automatically enrol eligible workers into a pension scheme and make contributions towards it.

As a society we’re living longer, healthier lives, and as such the relationship between those in work, and those retired, is changing dramatically.

In 1901 there were 10 people in employment for every 1 retired.This reduced to 4 to 1 in 2005, and is anticipated to reduce to 2 to 1 by 2050.

And yet in 2012, only 1 in 3 private sector workers were in a pension scheme, and the trend’s been downwards for the past 40 years.

The combination of this change and the fact that millions in employment are dramatically under-saving for their retirement, will cause a serious problem, hence the introduction of these reforms.

Your predicament

We understand that as an Accountant, Payroll Company Representative, Solicitor or IFA you may be being asked by your clients for help with auto enrolment.  Populo offers a mass solution, rather than having to go through all the admin of auto enrolment on an individual basis, making yours and your clients’ lives a lot easier.


Why recommend Populo?

There is a lot for you and your clients to keep track off when it comes to auto enrolment - undertaking a staff assessment and then repeating this every monthly pay run, maintaining records, communicating with staff, etc., etc.

Populo offers a fully compliant pension scheme that is easy to set-up, cost effective and provides all the necessary staff communications.  Our software automates auto enrolment to minimise the impact on your and your clients’ businesses.

We have identified a real need for small businesses to have a viable solution to help them meet their auto enrolment obligations.  The number of IFAs working on auto enrolment is limited and the cost of them carrying out a market assessment and recommendation is restrictive for SMEs.  As such and having reviewed the marketplace we have negotiated a deal with Carey Pensions to enable us to utilize their systems, experience and size to offer our simple, good value and compliant auto enrolment solution.
