When you must register

Schemes must be registered within three months of registering with HMRC.

Why you must register

Registration is important in allowing us to maintain up-to-date records of pension schemes and also helps us to accurately calculate the levy.

  • It's the trustees' responsibility to register occupational schemes with us.
  • It's the trustees' or manager's responsibility to register personal pension schemes with us.

How to register

Once you have registered a new pension scheme with HMRC you will be contacted separately to request that you register your scheme with The Pensions Regulator using our online service Exchange.

All new pension schemes should wait to be contacted by us before the scheme is registered with The Pensions Regulator, including personal pension schemes.

For more information on Exchange go to our Exchange questions and answers.

To register with HMRC go to the HMRC website.
