Tech Data encourages resellers to learn about auto enrolment with Sage

August 13, 2014

Basingstoke, 13 August 2014 – Tech Data UK is helping and encouraging resellers to get themselves and their customers up to speed on the new rules governing the automatic enrolment of staff in pension schemes by taking a special Sage e-learning course on the subject.

Designed to help businesses understand the main steps that need to be taken, the course will help resellers and businesses get to grips with workplace pension reform and implementing auto enrolment in their business.

Nick Stancliffe, ESD Business Manager at Tech Data, says it’s a good way for resellers to add extra value. “Workplace pension law is changing, which means employers will now have new legal duties to help employees save for retirement. This will mean big changes in the way that small businesses manage their employees’ pension schemes. The legislation carries a significant amount of administrative obligations, so businesses need to understand what auto enrolment means to them and resellers can add value by alerting them to the Sage course.”

The online course can be taken anytime, anywhere – all that’s needed is access to a PC that’s connected to the Internet.

Course content:

  • Introduction to Automatic Enrolment & Workplace Pensions
  • When do you need to start
  • The seven steps to prepare for Automatic Enrolment
  • Postponements, reviews, opt outs and re-enrolment
  • The Pensions Regulator (TPR) and keeping records
  • Test your Automatic Enrolment knowledge with an online quiz

The course costs £40.00 plus VAT.
