Auto enrolment is now well under way and employers are receiving letters from the Pensions Regulator with their staging dates. There is already speculation that the closer it gets to the end of the process then the more pressure there will be for the regulator to register everybody on time and if you leave it to the last possible minute then you might miss your deadline.

As a business owner, you’ll have to pay your staff but paying your staff is not as simple as just transferring money in to their bank account or putting cash in their hand. You’ll have to deduct tax and National Insurance contributions (NICs) from any earnings and that’s where it all starts to get a little bit complicated!
