Are you ready for Auto Enrolment?

What is it?

Auto Enrolment is a set of duties to make sure all eligible employees automatically become members of a qualifying pension scheme with a high enough level of contributions.

This means new responsibilities for the employer such as:

Workforce assessment

  • Provision and Auto Enrolment into a qualifying scheme
  • Facilitating opting out and refunds
  • Record-keeping

Why is the Department for Work and Pensions introducing Auto Enrolment?

  • The Government estimates about seven million people are not saving at all for retirement, or not saving enough.
  • Life expectancy is increasing - people will live longer in retirement and the size of their pension fund needs to be greater to fund this.
  • The Government may not be able to afford to keep state pensions at their current level in the longer term.

Time Frames

Some important time frames and key dates;

  • Any employer with a PAYE scheme registered before 1st April 2012 will have enrolled their staff by April 2017
  • Any employer with a PAYE scheme registered from 1st April 2012 will have enrolled their staff by February 2018 

Auto Enrolment: We’ve got it covered

Sage has provided easy to use software for over 30 years, consistently meeting the stringent standard set out by legislation and the needs of our customers.

Sage is working very closely with The Pension Regulator, investing significant resource to ensure their payroll and HR solutions are ready to provide our customers with a smooth transition into Auto Enrolment, guaranteeing compliance now and in the future.

Whatever size or type of business you run, there’s Sage Payroll software for you!

Sage is a trusted brand for customers seeking Payroll advice with over 500,000 employers in the UK choosing Sage Payroll software to pay over 7.6 million employees.

Make sure you are RTi compliant with Sage Payroll RTi Edition

Real Time Information or RTI is being introduce for all employers from April 2013 and will mean employers will be legally required to report PAYE in real time. This means that information about all PAYE payments need to be submitted to HMRC online (via a software solution) each time a payment is made as part of the payroll process, rather than at the end of the year as they are now.

RTi is not optional and all business will need to comply to RTi regardless of the number of staff it employs.  It is extremely important to get the information you submit to HRMC correct, so whatever solution you choose you will need a product you can trust, which is RTi ready as well as making the transition a smooth experience.

Sage have been working very closely with HMRC, investing significant resource in ensuring their Sage Payroll solutions are RTI-ready for the HMRC pilot, which began in April 2012. As a result, Sage 50 Payroll has been officially recognised by HMRC as RTi-ready.  Sage has added extra step by step instructions to help you through the process of submitting your PAYE for RTi giving you the confidence you need to know you’re doing everything correctly. 

As a Strategic Sage Business Partner, Timewade is well placed to provide assistance in making sure you meet these requirements.

Contact darren.leeder@timewade.com today to find out more about RTi and how it will affect your business.

Sage release Sage 200 ver 2011

The 2011 release builds on the key themes of:

Accessibility

Market research tells us that customers want quick, easy access to business critical information anywhere, anytime to enable them to make smarter, faster decisions.  This release builds on the 2010 release and now enables you to access information on the move from your Blackberry or iPhone

Information Management

Building on the 2010 release, Sage are continuing to improve the information management capabilities of the suite with the extension of Project Accounting within the Business Intelligence module.  This means you will be able to access information to determine project costs, revenues and profitability, compare budgets against actuals and better analyse resource utilisation, providing you with additional insight into key business metrics to improve efficiency

Improved Usability

We want systems that are easy for our customers to use so the focus has been on improving usability within this release, particularly for Web Time and Expenses and a new Migration Tool for those customers upgrading from Sage 50 

Key Highlights of the 2011 release:

New improved Web Time and Expenses (WTE)

The current WTE module has been completely remodelled to provide significant improvements for the 2011 release and will deliver the first stages of web client functionality in Sage 200.  This browser based solution will allow you to submit, amend, print and authorise or reject time and expenses claims anywhere or anytime.  This will improve business efficiency through better management and visibility of expenses and timesheets and allows prompt updates to projects.  The new WTE module will be included within Project Accounting as is no longer available as a stand-alone module

E-Marketing for Sage 200 CRM

The Sage 200 suite ver 2011 will include significant enhancements to the marketing functionality and reporting as well as providing E-Marketing within the solution.  This provides you with a proven application from one of the leading e-marketing providers, Swiftpage, allowing you to effectively deliver, track and analyse e-marketing campaigns through Sage 200 CRM

Sage 200 Mobile updated to include iPhone

The mobile workforce is changing the face of business and enables customers to access vital business information anywhere, anytime.  Sage 200 data is currently accessible to view and search using Blackberry devices and this has now been extended to support iPhones.  This enables your workforce to communicate effectively on the go

New Migration Tool

The new migration tool for Sage 200 ver 2011 will provide a more flexible and user friendly approach to migrating from Sage 50 to Sage 200 2011.  One of the main benefits is that you can now migrate partially processed orders which will enable quicker and more specific migration of data

The Royal Mail increases postage prices from the 4th April, how will this impact on your business?

The Institute of Commercial Management (ICM) has commented: "Unfortunately, as there are few alternatives, businesses have little choice but to accept the price rises."  

 But Timewade challenges the ICM Assumption

Darren Leeder, Sales Director at Timewade says "Spindle Professional helps UK businesses to quickly realise the benefits of changing to paperless systems and turns the prospect of increased postage costs to their advantage".  Darren adds "When the average cost of printing and posting an invoice is already about £1, another postage cost increase means UK businesses need to wake up, take notice and do something different to save money"
