DGS Chartered Financial Planners- Initial complimentary one to one advice and guidance on auto enrolment
DGS are working with a number of Corporate and Cocktails members assisting them in their obligations under auto enrolment.
They are continuing to offer initial complimentary advice and guidance on this topic to our members - either offsite or in the comfort of your own office.
It's been advised that you start planning for auto enrolment at least 18 months before your staging date.

DGS can also advise on and implement a range of employee benefit solutions, as well as reviewing your existing arrangements. They can help ensure your company pays a competitive premium for insurance products and that you receive high quality ongoing advice and support.
I used them to review a client's health insurance plan recently and they were able to find a provider which was appox £7,000 cheaper per year with comparable key features. The new plan also gave additional benefits to plan participants - such as reduced gym membership at national gyms and many discounts on well known products and services.
