Automatic enrolment and Basis Periods - Talking Points meetings

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: General, News and Updates, Talking Points

Welcome to my weekly blog about this week’s Talking Points meetings, which cover two different subjects.

Automatic enrolment duties for new employers

If your client becomes an employer for the first time, on or after 1 October 2017, they will immediately have legal duties for their staff. Automatic enrolment duties apply from the first day an employee starts working for your client; this is known as their duties start date. We will take you through what these duties are and update you on the latest news from The Pensions Regulator. There will also be plenty of time to answer your automatic enrolment and re-enrolment questions.

Tuesday 26 September - 1pm to 2pm         Book now

Basis Periods - Commencement years, changes to accounting date and overlapping periods

In particular, we look at the different rules that apply to commencement years and the effect on a basis period, when there is a change of accounting date and overlapping periods. We also look at some pointers when dealing with a change from sole trader to partnership and vice versa.
