A survey carried out by Thomas Westcott Chartered Accountants reveals that almost half of small businesses are unprepared for new workplace pension rules, according to a survey of key professional advisers to the region's SME (small to medium sized enterprise) sector.
Are businesses prepared for auto-enrolment?
When asked "are the businesses you advise prepared for auto-enrolment?" 44 per cent said they did not believe their SME clients were ready for the changes which will be introduced over the next two years in a series of staging dates.
The survey was conducted with key professional advisers who deal with many SME clients every day.
