A date with Accountex


An online start-up that guides businesses through the headache of new pension regulations has been invited to speak at a national conference.

My Auto Enrolment, which was shortlisted for a national innovation award in the Pensions Age Awards 2016, was launched last year to provide an online solution to business owners setting up a workplace pension.

My Auto Enrolment is a comprehensive online resource that ensures businesses comply with their auto enrolment duties and sets up a workplace pension scheme for a fixed fee.

Now the business is set to take centre stage at Accountex on May 11, one of the biggest events for the accountancy profession in the UK.

My Auto Enrolment creator, Stephen Watson, has been invited to speak at the ‘Firm of the Future’ Theatre at Accountex, which examines how technology is transforming the accountancy profession.

Watson is also founder and MD of Chartered financial planners and pension expert, Watson French.

He said: “We created My Auto Enrolment because businesses, especially micro employers, needed a simple, cost effective and advice-based solution that saves them time and money while making sure they are fully compliant.

“Our online toolkit guides them through the minefield of new pension regulations and our team then goes to the whole market to set up the best workplace pension for them. Because we are independent we are not tied to pension providers or products.

“We’ve had great feedback from businesses and accountants and we’re looking forward to sharing our experience and expertise with the Accountex audience.”
