Auto Enrolment Testimonial

LBW Chartered Accountants helped us through the minefield of auto-enrolment, taking total responsibility for setting up the scheme, liaising with The Pension Regulator and The Pension Provider, allaying any fears that both we and our employees had.

This was a huge weight off my shoulders and a real start-to-finish service.

The payroll team at LBW was knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and always prepared to go the extra mile in effectively communicating with all our people.

I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending LBW to deal with your auto-enrolment requirements.
