You asked: What happens if I don’t comply with the auto-enrolment regulations?

The Pensions Regulator is keen to help all employers comply. However, where an employer doesn't comply, there are three stages the regulator may follow:

  1. Warning - the Pensions Regulator sends the employer a compliance notice.
  2. Fixed fine - if the employer doesn't comply, the regulator issues another warning and a fine of £400.
  3. Daily fine - where the employer continues to break the regulations, there will be a fine for each day, with the penalty increasing until the company complies. The daily amount depends on the number of the employees.
