I'm an employer who has to provide a pension

Based on the information you've provided you are, or will be, an employer with staff who must be put into a pension scheme. Your automatic enrolment duties start when you employ your first member of staff (duties start date).

Remember, automatic enrolment is your legal duty and if you don't act in time you could be fined.

Start now to make sure you meet your duties on time. If you haven't set up your pension scheme within six weeks of your duties start date, go to late setting up your pension scheme.

What you need to do and by when

Choose a pension scheme that can be used for automatic enrolment and put your staff into it.

Work out who you need to put into a pension scheme on your duties start date.

Use our letter templates to write to each member of staff individually to tell them how automatic enrolment applies to them.

Complete your declaration of compliance to tell us how you've met your automatic enrolment duties. Do this by your declaration deadline or you may be fined.


Late setting up your pension scheme?

If you haven't set up your pension scheme within six weeks of your duties start date, you must backdate any contributions you've missed. Find out what you need to do if you're late setting up your pension scheme.
