    Work place pension help please! 12th Jun 17 at 10:12 PM
    This is my first post so please be gentle

    I have just quit my job to Manage a flooring shop for my best mate.

    He has been a very successful Floor fitter out of his van and has now progressed to opening a shop.

    He asked me to manage his shop as I have previous experience in managing flooring shops for large established companies but we are both starting this small business retail shop from scratch for the first time.

    We go back over 20 years and I was his best man at his wedding. I know that people say not to work with friends or family but I don't agree and feel that we will be fine.

    Our one and only stumbling block is the work place pension scheme!!

    Neither of us know enough about it!

    Can someone please guide us in the right direction or advise us where to start from an employer and an employee point of view.

    Thanks in advance

    Your friend is starting a company and you will be an employee of the company?

    He will have to pay into a pension for you (and can do one for himself too)
