NHF Pensions

An exclusive auto-enrolment solution for hair, barber and beauty salon owners

Over the next 3 years every employer must automatically enrol their workers into a qualifying workforce pension scheme and make contributions towards it. This is because millions of people are not saving enough to have the income they need when they retire.

Choosing and operating a pension scheme is one more thing for business owners to handle, on top of the day-to-day challenges of running a business and making a profit.

NHF has worked with Wren Sterling to provide a simple and cost-effective solution, tailored for the hair and beauty industry.
