The UK Pension Industry has enjoyed significant growth in recent years, partly driven by the introduction of automatic enrolment in pension schemes in October 2012, providing more funds for the industry to manage. The industry has experienced annual growth of 5.4% compounding over the five years to 2019 and contributed annual revenues of £152bn to the UK economy in the last year. 

At Johnston Carmichael we have a dedicated team of pension audit specialists who work with a variety of pension schemes, ranging from those with only a few members to schemes with over 1,000 members. We currently work with more than 100 clients in this space.

Since 2013 we have acted as audit panel members of the Pension Protection Fund (PPF). As one of only three UK audit firms on the Audit Services Panel, our experts understand the financial and regulatory complexities of defined benefit schemes and the wider pensions landscape.

Our team of pension specialists are led by Audit director and pensions specialist, Chris Wilkie.

We provide a whole host of services to our clients, including:

  • Statutory audits of pensions scheme and annual trustee reports.
  • Preparation of statutory and non-statutory pensions scheme accounts from accounting records.
  • Bespoke assurance engagements to provide comfort on a particular area as may be required by the Trustees.
