Business advisers

Employers are likely to ask you for help to choose and run a good quality pension scheme for automatic enrolment.

And it’s not just about pensions – automatic enrolment will impact upon most areas of your clients' businesses. Independent financial advisers (IFAs), employee benefit consultants (EBCs), actuaries, accountants, bookkeepers and other advisers can use our guidance and resources to help their clients make the right choices.
