We understand that businesses have an evolving landscape and at times business involves an element of uncertainty. We work in partnership with our business owners to manage their protection requirements as their business changes.
We appreciate that every business or organisation is different, however we believe that there is one thing in common, it’s the people that make your business run efficiently, and without them or even yourself your business would have a hard time functioning.
After all, premises can be rebuilt, content and material assets can be replaced, but replacing a person is not that straight forward.

Whether you are looking for a full business protection plan, shareholder protection, relevant life policy, key person cover or loan protection, we can provide the best solution for your business.
This is called ‘automatic enrolment’ because it is automatic for staff – they don’t have to do anything to be enrolled into a pension scheme, but it not automatic for employers. There is no ‘DO NOTHING’ option!
Since October 2012 UK employers have been required to automatically enrol employees into a ‘qualifying workplace pensions scheme’, as the Government have used employers to fund pension shortfalls.
The minimum contribution levels will be phased in between October 2012 and April 2019. There will be a minimum contribution of 8% of qualifying earnings, of which the employer must pay a minimum of 3%.
Our specialist Pension team at Quays Wealth Management are equipped to review existing pension schemes in line with Auto Enrolment changes; they can brief on Auto Enrolment regulations and support you and your business in implementation and budgeting advice.
