Auto enrolment has a bad rep and many people see the process as a dark art but it’s really not that complicated when you understand who contributes what.

In simple terms, a pension is a tax-saving benefit to employers as well as employees. Let Willow Financial Solutions support your company to set up an auto enrolment scheme the right way so that everyone can benefit.

Saving tax through salary exchange schemes

Salary exchange schemes are becoming a popular way for employers and employees to gain the benefit of tax and National Insurance savings.

Put simply, staff agree to receive a non-cash benefit in exchange for less money in their wages in the form of coupons, childcare vouchers, health insurance or membership as an example.

Willow Financial Solutions can provide advice on the options available and establish a suitable scheme for your business.

Insurance if accidents should happen

Group life insurance (or death in service) is a pay-out package to employees’ loved ones in the event of death at work or during employment.

The provision is a long-term strategy that will often result in higher staff retention levels because of the extended family assistance.

Willow Financial Solutions can organise group life insurance for any number of staff and offers advice on the tax savings advantages that employers will gain.

What happens if your company can no longer operate in its current form?

Corporate protection is a safeguarding solution for companies that includes life assurance and medical provision for the business owner or key employee/s.

In the event of death or serious illness, a corporation protection policy would set the wheels in motion based on an agreed number of variables to ensure the continued operation of the company.

Willow Financial Solutions offers guidance as to how a policy would work and the features required based on your business structure.
