Pensions Auto Enrolment – Key Messages from the Pensions RegulatorBack

PensionsKey fact:
The start of automatic enrolment for small and micro employers has been a success with more than 90% of the first group to reach their staging date now compliant.

With a significant rise in the number of employers having automatic enrolment duties it is no surprise that there has been an increase in the amount of times that The Pensions Regulator has used its statutory powers.  The Pensions Regulator takes a risk based proportionate approach and the vast majority of employers who do the right thing want to see that non compliant employers are dealt with.

Automatic enrolment: Do you know your correct staging date?

Your staging date is the date your automatic enrolment duties come into effect. Recent research by The Pensions Regulator showed that many employers are unaware of their correct staging date.

It’s important that you don’t get this key date wrong – make sure you know your correct staging date, in order to leave sufficient time to plan and prepare for your automatic enrolment duties, and to avoid risking a fine.

The Pensions Regulator has developed a ‘Duties Checker’ which will confirm your staging date and gives you the information you need to meet your duties.

Are you on track to meet your automatic enrolment duties on time?
Automatic enrolment is automatic for staff but not for employers. Employers must put certain staff into a workplace pension and pay contributions into the scheme. Our step by step guide is designed to make it as easy as possible for all employers – including those who employ just one or two people – to meet their legal duties.

To work out what you need to do, when you need to do it and to make sure that you only complete the tasks relevant to you, answer the questions in The Pensions Regulator’s ‘Duties Checker‘.

Do you know what services your business adviser can offer to help you meet your automatic enrolment duties?
Insight from The Pensions Regulator shows that employers can become non-compliant by failing to complete their declaration of compliance because they wrongly assumed their business adviser was doing this for them.

Employers and their advisers should be clear who is completing what automatic enrolment task and advisers should be clear about what services they offer. The best way to do this is to have an agreement in place with your adviser setting out clearly who will do what.

If you are an employer and you are concerned you might not be able to comply, visit The Pensions Regulator’s website for clear information on what you need to do and when. If you are still unsure, contact The Pensions Regulator. They are there to help you get back on track.
