IRIS are here to make auto enrolment as easy as possible. As part of our accountancy kit bag, we’ve created a 20-page presentation titled “An introduction to automatic enrolment” which is full of useful information to help make auto enrolment part of your practice’s business strategy.

The document covers a range of content, from the initial preparation to the workplace pension reform, to staging, and ongoing compliance. The presentation is designed to be a brief introduction to all major aspects of ensuring compliance with auto enrolment which you can share with your clients.

The presentation is just one part of our kit bag for accountants however. The kit bag has been put together with accountants in mind, there is a range of content available covering auto enrolment, from free guides and blogs, to guest articles from The Pensions Regulator, videos and presentations.

There are an estimated 570,000 small and medium-sized businesses staging for auto enrolment between April 2016 and April 2017 according to The Pensions Regulator. The free kit bag and presentation will help you communicate the relevant information to your clients as clearly as possible to help avoid fines.

The kit bag includes the 8 ways your clients will need to prepare for auto enrolment:

1. Know your staging date – when you need to act

2. Nominate a contact

3. Assess your workforce

4. Review your pension arrangements

5. Communicate the changes to all your workers

6. Automatically enrol your ‘eligible jobholders’

7. Complete the Declaration of Compliance with The Pensions Regulator

8. Contribute to your workers’ pensions

Whether you have clients staging for auto enrolment over the next 12 months, or whether you’re just looking for some information, the IRIS accountancy kit bag contains a huge range of relevant documentation to help, including the 20-page 'Introduction to Auto Enrolment' presentation.
