Auto Enrolment

Under the 2008 Pensions Act, every UK employer will have a legal obligation to provide, manage and contribute to a pension scheme for all eligible staff beginning from the Staging Date issued to them by the Pension Regulator. Most small businesses are staging between 2016 and 2018. Even if your business employs only one member of staff you still need to check if auto enrolment applies to you or not.
 
It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that all eligible staff are auto enrolled in a scheme by the Staging Date. Failure to comply might lead to an immediate fine of £400 which can escalate to daily fines of anything from £50-£10,000, depending on the number of staff you employ.
