Auto enrolment

When do I need to have my auto enrolment programme in place?
The changes to the pension system, aka “auto enrolment” are being rolled out across UK employers based on the number of employees they have.

The date by which your business must be fully compliant (i.e. your “staging date”) is based on the size of your workforce. To find your staging date, please see the chart below.

However, you may wish to consider staging early as there are advantages of doing so.
