Recruiters caught out by pension auto-enrolment

UK recruiters are in the pension regulator’s spotlight – and not in a good way. Since auto enrolment began, over two dozen UK recruitment firms have been caught by the regulator as being in breach of the law.

With fines of up to £50,000, being caught offside is a costly exercise. And with realistic setup costs of over £20,000, keeping onside isn’t cheap either. Recruiters engaging temporary staff PAYE face big challenges with auto enrolment, and forest is able to help. All our umbrella employees are engaged under full UK contracts of employment, with all the inferred rights and responsibilities of any UK employer.

By outsourcing this work to forest via umbrella, you’ll gain a host of other efficiencies, and your workers will benefit too. If having the PAYE scheme in-house is an absolute must, then luckily for you we’re an FCA regulated pensions specialist too.
