(2) After paragraph 3A (employers in periods of grace) insert—

Period of grace followed by a deferred debt arrangement

3B.  In a case where a period of grace is immediately followed by a deferred debt arrangement as the result of the trustees or managers of the scheme being satisfied that the conditions in regulation 6F(2)(b) and (3) of the Occupational Pension Schemes (Employer Debt) Regulations 2005 are met, the period of grace and the deferred debt arrangement are to be treated as one continuous period of time for the purposes of Part 3 of the 2004 Act and these Regulations.

Employers in deferred debt arrangements

3D.  For the purposes of paragraphs 3B and 3C—

“deferred debt arrangement” and “deferred employer” have the meanings given in regulation 2(1) (interpretation) of the Occupational Pension Schemes (Employer Debt) Regulations 2005..

Impact Assessments generally accompany all UK Government interventions of a regulatory nature that affect the private sector, civil society organisations and public services. They apply regardless of whether the regulation originates from a domestic or international source and can accompany primary (Acts etc) and secondary legislation (SIs). An Impact Assessment allows those with an interest in the policy area to understand:

  • Why the government is proposing to intervene;
  • The main options the government is considering, and which one is preferred;
  • How and to what extent new policies may impact on them; and,
  • The estimated costs and benefits of proposed measures.
