Johnson Fleming has formed a strategic partnership with The Health Insurance Group (THIG) to assist its clients with auto-enrolment.
The government's auto-enrolment scheme has been rolling out since 2012 and has now reached SME employers with 50 or fewer employees. This is a group that is well represented amongst THIG clients and many have indicated that they are struggling to get the project under way in their businesses.
Through the partnership, The Health Insurance Group’s clients get guaranteed access to Johnson Fleming’s dedicated auto-enrolment solutions that, after a fixed set-up fee from £1,100, offers a supported service from as little as £10 per month, or a fully managed service from only £99 per month.
Caroline Hope, Marketing Manager at Johnson Fleming comments: “Employers are responsible for the delivery of auto-enrolment and, if it goes wrong, they will be responsible for putting it right, including the cost.
“We are delighted to be working with THIG and their advisers, through the partnership they can use our services, to provide employers with the tools to action their monthly auto-enrolment duties themselves, using software compatible with all payroll and pension providers, or they can outsource the whole administration to us, allowing them to focus on what’s really important – their business.”
Brett Hill, Managing Director of The Health Insurance Group further explains: “The Health Insurance Group has a core client base of SMEs who all have to meet their deadlines for auto-enrolment. It is proving difficult for them to get it right and most pension providers are not providing help, because they are not able to accept any small companies due to lack of capacity for the extra workload. Johnson Fleming has agreed to help existing clients of The Health Insurance Group and provide an easy to access and affordable advice and support service.”
