Based on the information you've provided you still need to complete the steps below. Your automatic enrolment duties start when you employ your first member of staff (duties start date).
If you don't have staff who must be put into a pension scheme now, you still have other duties which include completing your declaration of compliance. Remember, automatic enrolment is your legal duty and if you don't act in time you could be fined. You'll also need to monitor your staff's circumstances in case you need to put any staff into a scheme in the future.
You must work out how much each member of staff earns and how old they were on your duties start date, to check that they don't need to be put into a scheme.
