Pension changes come into focus.

KIRKLEES employers have been urged to get up to speed with new measures to help workers save for retirement.

Employers have been handed responsibility by the government to ensure that employees are prepared for retirement with the introduction of Auto Enrolment - but businesses not ready for Auto Enrolment could be left facing hefty fines and penalties.

Auto enrolment means that any UK employer who employs at least one person must register with the Pensions Regulator and provide details of their workforce and any pension scheme which they will use to satisfy the employer duties.

They will also need to automatically enrol some workers into the scheme and arrange membership of a pension scheme for others.

Huddersfield-based Sheard Wealth Management is staging information events on Auto Enrolment and workplace pensions during January and February.

The first will be held from 8.30am to 10am on Thursday, January 29, at the offices of the Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce in Lockwood. The second will take place at the same time on Thursday, February 26, at Heritage Exchange in Lindley.

Both events can be booked at vwww.eventbrite.
