Make sense of the Auto-enrolment journey...


There’s no getting around it – Auto-enrolment can get complicated pretty quickly. From staging dates, workforce assessments and minimum contributions, where do you as a small business start?


To help you make sense of the Auto-enrolment journey, QuickBooks have created a special series called “A Year in the Life...”, where we’ll follow The Counselling Foundation, a charity based in St. Albans, Hertfordshire, as they get prepared to auto enroll their employees later this year.

By giving you an insight on how a Small to Medium Enterprise (SME) like The Counselling Foundation will deal with Auto-enrolment over the next few months, we’ll provide you the most practical guide on workplace pensions you’ll find, all from the small businesses’ perspective.


With videos and blog posts from The Counselling Foundation being updated regularly, please keep checking back here to see how they go about meeting their AE deadline.
