All dental practices, in common with all other businesses will have already or will soon have to contribute to a pension scheme for their eligible employees.
The date from which this must be done (known as the staging date) has already arrived for some dental practices, but for others it will be as late as 2017.
From that date employers have a duty to automatically enrol certain workers (depending on their age and salary level) into a qualifying workplace pension scheme. You can find out your staging date by going to www.thepensionregulator.gov.uk and enter your PAYE reference.
Fines for noncompliance are high and employers need to ensure that they take action on this prior to their staging date.
If you are concerned about meeting all of the regulatory obligations or if you require further information please get in touch.
