The government has confirmed it will consult on proposals to make the process of automatic enrolment simpler.
The consultation, which will be launched next month, will provide an opportunity for employers and the pensions industry to comment on a number of proposed changes.
Based on the feedback received since implementation, a shortlist of areas which could benefit from practical or technical improvements has been drawn up by the Department for Work and Pensions.
• Making assessment of the workforce easier
• Making it easier for money purchase schemes to show they meet the scheme quality requirements
• Removing the duty to enrol particular groups such as those who benefit from protection because they have already exceeded the lifetime allowance for tax purposes
Pensions minister Steve Webb said: "We've been listening to the experience of employers that have enrolled their workforce so far and recognise that some parts of the process could be improved. By consulting on these changes we can address this before automatic enrolment is rolled out to small and medium sized businesses.
"We don't want to make changes to legislation lightly but do we want to make sure that automatic enrolment is working as well as possible."
