You should do this before your staging date
You’ll need to have a pension scheme that is set up for automatic enrolment. You and your staff will pay money into this scheme to help them save for their retirement.
Unless you want to use an existing pension scheme for automatic enrolment, you’ll need to get a new one.
If you need to put your staff into a pension scheme the National Employment Savings Trust (NEST) is a pension scheme provider that has been set up by the government for employers like you. It must accept any employer that wishes to join.
There are other pension schemes available. More information on other schemes and how to choose one can be found in our choosing a pension scheme section.
Now that you've chosen a pension scheme, you must put your staff into it. The next step will help you to do this.
