Last minute meetings. Urgent emails and frantic phone calls. Couriers speeding across the country. What’s so important? The last few days were the statutory deadline for many sets of pension scheme’s accounts. If you haven’t completed them by now then you are probably making a report to The Pensions Regulator to explain what went wrong and what you are doing to make sure it does not happen again next year.
We are constantly looking around for new ideas or proven techniques to help trustees obtain more timely audited accounts. We have outlined below three excellent ideas that have helped many trustees so far and which we believe could be of great help for your scheme – see what you think and please share them with your fellow trustees and advisers.
Once you have the answers to these questions: Take Action! Agree the improvements that need to made for next year. Following our 3 Step Improvement Plan, many of our clients now deliver their accounts two months earlier than previous year and with a lot less hassle which gives them time to focus on their key goals.
