Auto Enrolment Exemption For Small Owner Managed Businesses Directors / Office Holders

Phew! That was lucky.

It seems that office holders (directors and company secretaries) are not deemed workers, unless they have a service contract. That means that if you own a LTD company, you and your wife are directors (maybe your daughter too), there is no legal obligation to auto enrol for pensions. Incidentally, volunteers are exempt too.

Thanks be to God!

Business owner managers in the Guildford area will be pleased; as accountants, we are too.

“We are all in”? Er, no we are not!
