As more and more businesses enter Auto enrolment it is worth taking a moment to consider the position of your limited companies and the position of yourself as a director(s) of the same.
Is a director a worker?
A director of a company is not classed as a worker unless:
The individual works for the company under a contract of employment AND
There is at least one other person working for the company under a contract of employment.
A director who is not working under an employment contract is never classed as a worker. These rules also apply if there is more than one director of the same company.
It is still likely that even if you only have directors on your payroll you will receive a letter which includes your staging date from the Pensions Regulator.
The Regulator advises that if you believe that automatic enrolment duties do not apply then you must let them know accordingly.
If you visit the page below on the Regulator’s website you will find a pre-populated email to send to them which should ensure the record is updated to show that you are not an employer for Auto Enrolment purposes.
