For those of you who operate a Workplace Pension here is a timely reminder that from 6th April 2018 the rate of minimum deduction is increasing. For the employer the minimum rises from 1% to 2% and for the employee from 1% to 3%. If deductions are already above these new minimums nothing need be done but for all others it is important that the deductions post 6 April are made at the correct rate.

It is advisable to make sure that your employees are duly informed that their deductions are going up.
