First of all, I apologise as I am sure this has been covered before, I just can't find it.
I am just trying to refresh my knowledge on this as staging dates get closer!
I spoke with the pensions regulator and they advised something that was different from my recollection from here:
If a company with a director (no contract of employment) has one other employee, and that employee is:
An entitled worker: No AE scheme has to be in place. Ok, they have to be asked if they want to join a scheme, but this can be any scheme.
A non-eligible Job Holder: Again no AE scheme has to automatically be in place. If they opt in, the employer has 6-weeks to get a scheme in place.
Is this correct?
My understanding from previous aweb posts was if there was an employee, a scheme had to be in place, end of. Am I wrong and the regulator right? I hope so!
Thanks in advance for replies
