Watch out for your Pensions automatic enrolment!
The date your Pension automatic enrolment duties start is called your staging date and is when the law comes into effect for you. It can be found on the letters about automatic enrolment that the Pensions Regulator sends to you.
There are several tasks you’ll need to complete before your staging date to be ready to comply with your duties – for example, choosing a pension scheme.
Give yourself plenty of time before your staging date to prepare for automatic enrolment. This will allow you time to plan your finances, and find the best pension scheme for your staff and to carry out other tasks listed in the Pensions Regulator guide.
Check as soon as possible which one is your staging date, as in the chart above you can find it using your PAYE reference. If you don’t pay your staff through a PAYE scheme, your staging date will be 1 April 2017.
