We have additional information to help you understand your costs. You can also contact your pension provider should you require more information.
If any of your staff fall outside of the above age and earning criteria then you only need to put them into a pension scheme if they ask.
If you’ve worked out that you don’t have staff to put into a pension scheme you still have other tasks to carry out in order to meet your legal duties including writing to each member of staff individually and completing your declaration of compliance.
If your member of staff earns £116 a week (£503 a month) or below, HMRC may not require you to set up a PAYE scheme. However, you do still have certain automatic enrolment duties:
When you start paying a member of staff more than £116 per week, you must set up a PAYE scheme with HMRC. You must also assess your member of staff to work out if they need to be put into a pension scheme that you also pay into. After you set up your PAYE scheme, we'll write to you and ask you to complete a declaration of compliance, which is where you tell us how you've met your duties, by a specific date.
You must continue to monitor your member of staff’s age and earnings each time you pay them in case you need to put them into a pension scheme in the future.
If you don’t have any staff who must be put into a pension scheme from your duties start date, continue to the next step as you still have other legal duties to carry out.
