If you employ someone – even if it’s just one person – you’ll need to offer them a Workplace Pension. It’s the law.

Welcome to Workplace Pensions Gateway Limited.

We simplify the process of Auto Enrolment for you to provide you with a low cost end to end solution.

I am Founder & Director of Workplace Pensions Gateway Limited. I am also a Co-Chair of the CIPP (Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals) Friends of Automatic Enrolment. Prior to establishing Workplace Pensions Gateway Limited, I was a key member of the Scottish Widows Auto Enrolment Taskforce.

I have personally supported hundreds of employers through the process of Auto Enrolment since its inception in 2012.  I have seen how much employers value the one to one specialist support we offer to help them to comply with the complex legislation at minimal cost to their business. This has helped shape our proposition and pricing.

We are a partner firm of the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals Friends of Auto Enrolment. We work closely with payroll throughout the process as we understand the importance of payroll in the successful implementation and ongoing administration of auto-enrolment.

Whether your using the FREE SimplyEnrol Auto Enrolment Planner or our Full Auto Enrolment Essentials Service, we look forward to working with you.

The law on workplace pensions has changed. Under the Pensions Act 2008, every employer in the UK must put certain staff into a pension scheme and contribute towards it. This is called ‘automatic enrolment’.

If anyone who works for you on your staging date will be aged between 22 and up to state pension age and earns more than £833 per month (£192 per week) you are an employer who has to provide a pension scheme.

Whether you’re using our FREE SimplyEnrol Auto Enrolment Planner or our FULL Auto Enrolment Essentials Service we will need to know your staging date.

Your staging date is set in law as of 1 April 2012 and is the date your automatic enrolment duties come into effect for you. You must be prepared for this date. You’ll need your PAYE reference to find out your staging date.

The PAYE Reference can be found on letters you have received from The Pensions Regulator about automatic enrolment. Alternatively, it can be found on the letter HMRC sent you when you first registered as an employer, or from your payroll software package.

Once you have your PAYE reference you can confirm your staging date by clicking the button below:

The FREE SimplyEnrol Auto Enrolment Planner is an excellent tool and suitable for employers with more than 3 months to go before their staging date who would like to self-serve.

If you have less than 3 months to go or would simply like to focus on your business and outsource the preparations for your Staging Date to a Workplace Pensions Specialist we recommend our FULL Auto Enrolment Essentials Service.

If you  would simply like to focus on your business and outsource the preparations for your Staging Date to a Workplace Pensions Specialist we recommend our FULL Auto Enrolment Essentials Service.

The key features of the FULL Auto Enrolment Essentials Service are as follows;

  • Welcome call
  • Register employer contact with The Pensions Regulator on your behalf
  • Gather payroll data to provide Workforce Assessment to establish which employees are likely to be auto-enrolled
  • Face to face meeting with you to outline what needs to be done ahead of your staging date and on an ongoing basis to comply

*We understand that many employers are looking to minimise the cost of auto-enrolment and therefore we only recommend schemes that have confirmed they will accept the statutory minimum Qualifying Earnings basis for contributions and also do not incur an ongoing employer charge.

We only recommend schemes that have been independently reviewed to demonstrate they meet the standards set out in the master trust assurance framework developed by the ICAEW (Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales) in partnership with The Pensions Regulator.

We also only recommend schemes that have achieved the Pensions Quality Mark (PQM) READY kite mark.

If you employ someone – even if it’s just one person – you’ll need to offer them a Workplace Pension. It’s the law.
