International and Overseas Employers

Overseas Employers | Workplace Pensions for Non-UK Employers | UK Auto Enrolment Pensions for International Employers | Non UK bank account pension contributions

Whether employees are ‘working or ordinarily work’ in the UK will determine whether they should be auto-enrolled.  Generally, if you employ either a UK citizen or a foreign national under a UK contract, you are obliged to comply with the pension law.  The TPR have provided detailed guidance for employers on assessing the workforce.

The issue for many overseas employers is that many Master Trust arrangements are unable to accept Non UK bank account pension contributions and many scheme’s require the employer to open a UK bank account.  The Lewis Workplace Pension Trust are happy to accept payments from Non UK bank accounts, providing the monies are paid in GBP.
