Step 4 Declare your compliance

You must do this within 5 months after your duties start date.

Start your declaration now

You have a legal duty to complete your declaration of compliance to tell us how you've met your duties.

Even if someone else has helped you with your duties and may even be completing the declaration for you, it is your legal duty to make sure that the declaration is completed on time and the information entered is correct. If not, you may be fined.

You can only start your declaration of compliance when you receive your letter from us, as you'll need your letter code and PAYE reference. Although you have five months to complete your declaration, we recommend that you start as soon as possible after you've carried out your automatic enrolment duties.

If you have all the relevant information to hand it can take as little as 15 minutes to complete your declaration. To help you do this you should use the declaration checklist which shows you all of the information you will need and where you can get it from.

Once you have completed your declaration of compliance you still have ongoing duties towards your staff.

How to log in

Before you can start your declaration of compliance you will need to log into the Government Gateway.

If you already have a Government Gateway user ID, log in and select automatic enrolment.

If you don't have a Government Gateway user ID, you will need to create one. Once you have done this you will receive a message to say you've 'registered'. This doesn't mean that you've completed your declaration. It means that you have registered with the Government Gateway and can now enrol to start your declaration. You still need to complete your declaration of compliance with The Pensions Regulator.
