Facts About Auto Enrolment

  • What is auto enrolment?

    Automatic enrolment is a Government initiative to encourage people to save for their retirement through a workplace pension scheme. Auto enrolment transfers the responsibility of funding retirement from the state to the individuals and employers, and makes it compulsory for employers to sign their staff up to a pension scheme and make contributions towards it.

  • Why do I need to comply?

    An employer has to set up an auto enrolment scheme, enrol employees in it and keep all paper work up to date by law. Fail to do so and you risk penalties and fines for non-compliance. The Pensions Regulator is conducting more and more investigations to ensure employers are compliant. Up to the end of March 2016 7834 Companies received Compliance Notice Letters and of those: 2234 Companies received a £400 fixed penalty fine and 127 received escalating daily fines of up to £2500 per day. These fines are Avoidable - Use an Auto Enrolment specialist company to do everything for you.

  • Who does it affect?

    Every company in the UK that has 1 or more employees is affected and must provide a workplace pension scheme for all eligible employees and register it with the Pension Regulator by their staging date - that’s over 1.3 million employers still to register.

  • When do I need to auto enrol my staff?

    Your staff must be enrolled by your staging date (the date your automatic enrolment duties come into effect).

Auto Enrolment - FAQs

1. Q: What is auto enrolment and who does it affect?

Put simply, auto enrolment is new legislation that requires business owners to automatically enrol all eligible employees into a qualifying workplace pension scheme and pay contributions. Any business that employs at least one person is affected by auto enrolment.

2. Q: When is my staging date?

Every company’s staging date is different. The first companies required to register for auto-enrolment began the process in 2012, but your staging date could be as late as 2017. Help Me Auto Enrol can help you identify your staging date easily – all we need is the PAYE reference number for your business.

3. Q: So all I need to do is make sure my employees are auto-enrolled by the staging date?

No – once registration is complete you have an ongoing responsibility to ensure any changes affecting your employees’ auto-enrolment rights are handled. This includes new starters, leavers, opt-ins, opt-outs and employees changing the category they are in.
