Penalty notices

Section 89 of the Pensions Act 2004 gives us the power to publish information on cases where we have exercised or considered exercising our powers.

Our ability to publish information – including details of our enforcement cases – plays an important part in enabling our commitment to transparency, and increases awareness and understanding of our decisions and actions.

The following tables name employers who have received an Escalating Penalty Notice (EPN) for breaches relating to automatic enrolment under the Pensions Act 2008. We will publish the names of those who have paid their EPN and remain non-compliant, as well as those who have failed to pay their EPN and as a result have been made subject to a court order.

We also publish information about failures to complete a scheme return or prepare a compliant chair’s statement. Trustees have a legal obligation to give us information about their pension scheme by completing a scheme return when required, and can be fined under section 10 of the Pensions Act 1995. The Occupational Pension Schemes (Charges and Governance) Regulations 2015 also require us to issue a mandatory penalty where there has been a failure to prepare a chair’s statement. The list includes the name of the scheme, type of breach, and the fine amount, and names any professional trustee related to that scheme.

We will publish this information on a quarterly basis. Penalties are listed when they become payable but may relate to an historical breach.
