The concept of a Workplace Pension Scheme was introduced by the Pensions Act 2008. All employers in the UK are required to establish a Workplace Pension Scheme on their Staging Date. On you Staging Date and each subsequent Pay Period you must carry out an Assessment of your employees. The employer must deduct a contribution from the earnings of all their Eligible Employees and pay this to the scheme along with an employer contribution. A process called Automatic enrolment.
I am delighted with the Retirement Advice provided by Corporate Benefits Consulting Ltd, in particular, the way Iain McCallum explained every option carefully and in a way that I could easily understand so that the whole process was very straight forward and hassle free.

Thanks to the team at Corporate Benefits for the very professional and straightforward resolution of my pension difficulties at retirement. Consolidating my four separate pensions into one and getting an enhanced annuity due to my health problems had given myself and my wife quite a few worries but not any more. Great communication , clear, upfront and concise advice from start to finish of this process has lifted a weight from both of us. Once again thank you . Murdo and Margaret Dolan, Glasgow
“I established my first personal pension with Corporate Benefits on starting a new job in 2014, having previously held a corporate pension. Being fairly new to pensions, Corporate Benefits were extremely helpful in giving me enough information and advice to understand the tailored pension they recommended for me. They have happily answered any questions I have had during the process, including helping me to understand clearly the breakdown of payments and investments. With the pension recommended for me, I have been able to monitor the pension growth and personalised regular investment reviews made via a web portal which has been both interesting and rewarding. At my first yearly review, earlier this year, I was pleasantly surprised by the growth over my first year and reassured that the regular monitoring of my pension strategy are benefiting me over the longer term.”
“Corporate Benefits have made a very confusing situation very easy to manage. They gave us very clear sensible advise and clarified the confusing situation that surrounded the new pensions legislation. Our advisor was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the new arrangements and was very good at listening to our needs and advising us appropriate to meet those needs. We feel we’ve had a very high quality service from our advisor and would be very happy to recommend them.”
