It is now a requirement for an employer to contribute to a pension scheme for an employee. However, if you employ five or more staff, then you are required to offer a “stakeholder” pension facility enabling your employees to contribute via your payroll system.
If you do wish to contribute to a scheme for an employee, this is known as an “employer pension contribution”. This would be treated as an expense for the company and therefore would be tax deductible.
