Got a question?
We answer some of the most frequently asked questions about auto enrolment.
What is auto enrolment?
In 2008, new pension rules were introduced that required all UK businesses to provide a workplace pension by 2018. All employees who satisfy certain criteria are automatically enrolled onto a workplace pension scheme in a process known as auto enrolment.
Does auto enrolment apply to me?
If you employ one or more people aged 22 or over who earn a minimum of £10,000 per annum (the minimum qualifying earnings for 2019/2020), you’ll need to provide a workplace pension scheme.
When will auto enrolment start to affect me?
Auto enrolment will start to affect you as soon as you have an employee. This means you’ll need your pension arrangements in place no later than your PAYE processes.
