As you have now added an 'Add your reply' button, you can dispense with the 'Hide comments' button which appears alongside the 'Add your reply' at the foot of the comments when you have clicked on the 'View all nn replies' button. It never did hide the comments, so was a misnomer, and it takes you to exactly the same place as 'Add your reply'.

Another couple of suggestions:
What about restoring the formatting facilities (bold, italic, underline, numbering, bullet points and particularly, insert link) when making comments?
What about restoring avatars to comments?

He may have experience of the technical tax aspects, but there is nothing in his job history to suggest that he has experience of listening to his "customers" and providing the services which his "customers" (I include agents along with taxpayers) actually want. He needs to do a much better PR job than his predecessor.

I have never heard of Payrite (looks like American) payroll software. Is "pensionsync" going to make its automated data transfer system available on the payroll software which people actually use - like Moneysoft and Sage?

What does this closing question mean?

Having had experience of a couple of clients who have staged, I would not dream of offering a fixed price menu. The clients who have staged so far have many more employees than the micro employers coming up in 2016 & 2017 and they needed to be treated as individual cases because of their different complexities and problems. Perhaps later on in 2016, when I have done a few of the micro employers with less complications, I will be able to estimate a standard fee.

My heart bleeds for them!
All those public servants in contracted out occupational pension schemes where they might pay a 5% contribution, but the employer (the public, AKA you and me) pay 20%. The employees lose only a 1.4% NIC rebate - it is the employers (you and me) who get the biggest hit with the loss of a 3.4% NIC rebate. Do you think that (say) the Local Government pension scheme will reduce the 20% employer's contribution to compensate?
And pigs might fly ...

Let me put my question more clearly
Are there any circumstances in which TPP will not charge a fee of at least £300 to set up a pension scheme?

This is great news for accountants as if you help your clients and if they choose TPP you save them £200! If you leave them out in the cold they pay the full £500 and still need you to provide data from payroll anyway.
Are you saying that a client will still have to pay £300 to TPP even if TPP are providing none of the listed services, because we as accountants/payroll providers/advisers are providing all the services and will be charging the client for them? As a fee of £200 would be bottom end for our work on setting up an AE pension scheme, the client might well think that he would be better off paying £500 to TPP.
