Even though Auto Enrolment and work based pensions commenced in October 2012 it is only now that it is becoming a reality for vast swathes of UK businesses.
These high volumes mean that pressure on pension companies has never been higher and there is also a great deal of confusion from smaller employers as to what is involved, whether their existing pension is suitable and what they need to do.
This Guide takes you through Auto Enrolment, what your responsibilities are as an employer and what your options are.
Payroll Superpower - Stan’s Mini-Me
After joining the team in 2011, Josh became an understudy to Dataplan Stan. He quickly acquired Stan’s superhuman mentality and an intelligence quotient far above that of genius level. Josh’s ability to respond to your payroll queries uses time manipulation in such an efficient way that it gives the appearance as though time has stopped. That coupled with his dark haired good looks makes Josh Stan’s Mini-Me.
From leaving school Jo worked as a civil servant for over 18yrs then went on to work at The Grimsby Institute. As well as working for Dataplan she has a demanding part-time job being a taxi driver for her 2 daughters! Jo enjoys family time, reading, going to the cinema and eating out.

Originally from Essex, Mark moved to Grimsby at the age of nine. His time in school resulted in achieving excellent GCSE results and an International Baccalaureate Diploma from college whilst he also worked at Cleethorpes seafront during the summer. Mark’s academic successes eventually led him to move and study Psychology at the University of Leicester. He completed his degree and also gained a submission to the Journal of Vision during his final year under a co-author listing, and he kept himself busy in his free time working in the university catered kitchens.
Mark joined Dataplan Payroll Limited after a brief time working in Argos where he quickly became a highly trusted and independent staff member, with a mind to maintain and grow his skills in data processing, customer service and all things payroll from time spent in retail environments.

In his spare time he can be found attempting to strum a guitar and reading as many of the ‘Classics’ as is humanly possible, often at the same time (it’s a skill).Payroll Superpower - Knowledge Hoarding
Luke has an unquenchable appetite for knowledge, and will not be content until he understands everything. We suspect he will never be content.
