Corporate Services

For Your Business

Whether you run a small, medium or large enterprise, there will be a need to consider the implications for you in the areas below. We have many years’ experience advising companies of varying size, as well as advising senior management on their own personal circumstances.

Providing effective benefits for your employees and protecting your business in event of loss of key staff can be crucial to the smooth running of a business.

For Your Employees

A key element in the successful running of your business can depend on the ability to attract and retain high quality staff; one of the most effective ways of achieving this is by providing an attractive benefits package.  Whether you choose to offer staff a package that includes a generous holiday entitlement, a company car or a suite of financial products it is important that the benefits are relevant and cost effective.

Pensions

Auto-enrolment is currently being phased in for all UK Employers. Unlike many previous Government legislative changes the new rules apply to all UK employers regardless of their size, as such all businesses will be affected at some point - for some this will be sooner rather than later!

There is a danger that trying to understand and implement all of this could take up a disproportionate amount of time for a business owner and in many cases it could end up costing a lot more than it needs to.

The AGL Corporate Pension Trust - a unique solution under a Master Trust pension arrangement:

  • A Defaqto 5 star rated qualifying workplace pension administrator - Carey Corporate Pensions UK
  • A reduced cost for employers held for a 60 day period from engagement to achieve early set up ahead of staging date to secure the scheme provider
  • Provides a turnkey solution for employers, for an end to end auto-enrolment solution ahead of staging dates to ensure they have secured their pension in advance of their staging dates and are protected from non-compliance of their regulatory responsibilities
  • Each employer will be automatically accepted, registered and a new workplace pension scheme established in line with the requirements of The Pensions Regulator
  • There is no maximum or minimum number of employees required to join
  • Easy to understand default investment fund arrangement - Scheme Default Fund BirthStar managed by multi-award winning Alliance Bernstein and part of the global AXA Group
  • Qualifying Pension Scheme under Master Trust structure with Independent Trustee Governance Board from a leading pension provider and specialist trustee
  • A team of Wealth Management and Corporate Services Specialist based in Glasgow and Edinburgh to provide advice to business owners, senior management and employees
