Our Setup Service

If you employed staff on or after 1 October 2017 your legal duties for automatic enrolment begin on the day your first member of staff starts work. This is known as your duties start date and you cannot change this date.

Setting up your workplace pension for automatic enrolment with us is quick and simple, allowing you to get on with what is important to you – running your business.

We have a wide choice of providers available to us, but have negotiated special terms for FSB members with SMART Pensions.

Below is a brief comparison table showing a selection of providers in the Workplace Pension market:
