Insurance & Pensions

It is common in the UK for employers to offer private health insurance and to contribute to the pension fund of their employees. In fact, by the end of 2017, it will become compulsory for employers to contribute to a pension scheme for all their employees. Since this area is quite complex, we introduce our clients to pension specialists able to advise on the best solutions. We also introduce you to our insurance partners to put in place all the insurance covers required for your new subsidiary (life insurance, civil responsibility, key people, professional indemnity, content insurance, travel insurance, etc.).
