Auto enrolment is something that many accountants don’t get too involved with. As long as their client has a scheme in place, that may be as much as they care to know. But the service from different providers has a significant impact on how easy it is for accountants, payroll managers and finance teams to manage this important service and the time it can take.

The costs, fund performance and ease of use can also have a huge impact on the engagement from the employees at the company.

In our on-demand webinar, we speak to Ellie Lister, Account Management Lead at Penfold, payroll expert Ian Holloway and Mathew Akrigg, from The Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP), about what to look for in an auto enrolment provider, and how the latest advances in technology can save you and your clients time.
