Auto-enrolment – Make sure you comply

A nursery and its main director are to be prosecuted by The Pensions Regulator for allegedly trying to avoid providing their staff with a workplace pension.

Merseyside-based Sulouste Ltd, which trades as Tiny Hearts Day Nursery, and director Christine Moore are also accused of falsely claiming they had enrolled 13 staff into a workplace pensions scheme. Knowingly providing false information to The Pensions Regulator is an offence under section 80 of the Pensions Act 2004.

They have been summonsed to appear at Brighton Magistrates Court on 13 November and will each face one charge of wilfully failing to comply with their automatic enrolment duties and one charge of knowingly or recklessly providing false or misleading information to The Pensions Regulator.

Make sure you understand what you need to do to comply with auto-enrolment, and by when.
