Appointing Sterling & Law to assist us with our automatic enrolment duties was definitely the right move. They worked through the process with us step by step and made what initially seemed a rather daunting task easily manageable. We can rest assured that we are fully compliant with the duties and responsibilities this new legislation places on employers now and going forward. Laurence, Kevin and the rest of the team could not have been more helpful, answering any queries promptly and visiting us on site when necessary. So I highly recommend Sterling & Law for the provision of “automatic enrolment” services to any employer.
