Drummond Laurie Chartered AccountantsThe government’s auto enrolment revolution will only be reaching the vast majority of businesses over the next year. At Drummond Laurie we’re taking the strain away from our clients by offering a combined payroll and auto-enrolment service. Working with NOW pensions we are able to support our clients through the process of auto-enrolment from compliance, staging and ongoing obligations.

A high number of owner managed businesses don’t have an HR department or in-house payroll expertise and this means the owners have yet more administration to deal with. They tend to under-estimate the time it takes to set up a scheme and expect it to be relatively straight-forward. However, small employers are now discovering not only that auto-enrolment is complex and challenging, but also that some pension providers simply don’t want them. Many are reluctant to accept schemes with a small number of employees, especially if they are to be based on minimum contributions, because they do not consider them to be profitable.

We can offer:


  • Simple solutions to support you in meeting your duties as an employer for both payroll and auto enrolment.
  • We tailor our payroll service to suit and can process all frequencies. As part of our fully managed service we offer RTI submissions, ePayslips, eReporting and as a BACS bureau we can pay your employees direct too.
  • We can support you throughout the implementation of your company pension scheme, providing a tailored solution that gives you as much or as little involvement as you and your business require.
  • We can automatically enrol everyone you need us to so that you have the comfort that you have met your auto enrolment.

Talk to us soon. Setting up a workplace pension and enrolling staff is surprisingly complex and time-consuming. It is easy to get it wrong. Employers who don’t set up their scheme on time risk getting a substantial fine, ranging from £50 to £2,500 per day.
