How we help our clients

As part of our payroll procedure we automatically increase the contributions into your workplace pension scheme. This is in line with the statutory increase, for all employees who currently have the minimum deduction. Furthermore, to help with budgeting, each month we send our clients a pension report that shows the employers pension calculations.

The tables below shows the phases of contribution increases, with the employer paying the minimum contribution.
