Pensions Summit“At the moment, most people in Britain aren’t saving enough for retirement and the Government is reforming the pension system to change that.

“Auto enrolment aims to change that by making workplace pensions compulsory. From the get go, six million savers will be created. When this is combined with the record levels of employment that the Government’s Long Term Economic Plan has delivered, this means that more people than ever are putting money away for retirement.Because of this, I back the plans 100% but, as a small business owner myself, am also all too aware of the need to stay a step ahead of regulation and how government rule changes can easy wrong foot even the vigilant.

“That’s why I’m hosting this Pensions Summit so businesses in the constituency can come and meet representatives from the Government’s Pensions Regulator and from the pensions industry. They will be on hand to answer questions on the changes in general and on the specific concerns of individual businesses on the day.

“It’s absolutely vital that businesses get on board and comply by their staging dates, because fines will follow. If you are a business owner or manager and this first you have heard of it or if you are vague about what is required, this summit is for you.”

The Summit is on Friday, 11th March from 10am-12pm at the Andover Guildhall. Please pass this invitation on to as many of your business contacts in the local area as you can so we can make sure everyone is included.
