TPR promises assessment tool for Basic PAYE users

In a welcome move, The Pension Regulator (TPR) has announced that it will design an online assessment tool to support users of Basic PAYE Tools (BPT). HMRC confirmed some time ago that they would not enhance the BPT to deliver auto-enrolment functionality. TPR have said they hope to have the assessment tool, which they are calling the ‘basic contribution calculation tool’, ready for use by the end of 2015.
