A Year in the Life…

1 min read

Auto-enrolment. Workplace Pensions. You’ve probably heard of the terms. You probably know what it is and what it entails.

But what does the day-to-day management of Auto-enrolment actually look like and what impact it could have on your business?

In a new series, QuickBooks have created “A Year in the Life of…”, an initiative which follows one of our customers over the next few months as they tackle Auto-enrolment for the first time.

With the workplace pensions spotlight firmly set on the small-to-medium sized enterprise in 2015 and 2016, this is an excellent opportunity for you to find out what you need to know in order to stay compliant with Auto-enrolment.


Making sense of Auto-enrolment

We’ll be looking at The Counselling Foundation, a charity based in Hertfordshire, and attempt to understand their challenges, obstacles and surprises.




As an organisation that will start to contribute to their employee pensions in October 2015, the need for an actionable plan that enables them to hit this date becomes essential.

You’ll be able to follow the foundation and Nicky McDonald, Finance Manager, as they start communicating the workplace pension changes to their staff, as well as how they use QuickBooks, the world’s no.1 accounting software solution to manage employee contributions and payroll.

With exclusive interviews and videos, you can be sure that you’ll receive a first hand, comprehensive view on the Auto-enrolment journey.

We’ll be posting updates on The Counselling Foundation, over the next few weeks so keep checking back on the Intuit site (www.intuit.co.uk) for the latest information on “A Year in the Life”.
