Expert Independent Advice
There are many reasons for winding up a workplace pension scheme.
Most often it is due to financial limitations, but whatever the motive, if the employer no longer wants to support the scheme winding up can be a daunting prospect especially given the strict code of conduct as directed by The Pensions Regulator.
Unfortunately, the process is complicated and lengthy (taking at least 18 months). As trustees, you are obliged to keep the employer informed of progress, including the provision of a detailed valuation of the scheme and how money is to be apportioned. It is imperative that you seek expert independent advice and the appropriate support to avoid unnecessary delays and unforeseen costs and comply with your statutory responsibilities.
