A Cornish accountancy firm hosted a seminar yesterday for business owners and employers that addressed the new pension auto enrolment rules.
Robinson Reed Layton and its sister company DCN&Co, based in Truro, teamed up with Sage and Jacksons Wealth Management for the seminar, held at The Penventon in Redruth.
June Horne, regional development manager at Sage, highlighted the seven key steps of preparing for auto enrolment and how Sage can help businesses smoothly manage the process.
Roger Weeks, finance director and financial adviser at Jacksons Wealth Management, was also on hand as a pensions expert, highlighting pension scheme related issues relevant to auto enrolment and providing advice on how businesses can overcome the many obstacles they may face.
Robinson Reed Layton’s senior partner, Paul Reed, said: “Robinson Reed Layton is dedicated to supporting Cornish businesses, so it was excellent to be able to offer them support and advice through the seminar.
“It is worth noting that by 2017, 3675 businesses will be registering their auto enrolment every working day, so it is important that businesses are prepared.
“The seminar provided the opportunity for us to use our expertise and knowledge to answer business owners’ many questions and we will be providing future seminars as auto enrolment gains momentum.”
