What questions should I be asking my payroll?

Auto enrolment  is complicated and accurate and timely data is needed to ensure that all the required actions are completed when due – penalties for non compliance are high.  You should ask your Payroll what systems and processes they have in place to deal with all aspects of Auto-enrolment including assessing and communicating with members.
