Auto enrolment tool
Under Pensions Auto Enrolment employers must:
- 'auto enrol' eligible employees into a pension scheme
- make employer pension contributions for them, and
- make deductions of employee pension contributions from the employees pay.
Although the rules came into force from October 2012, they only impact on the largest employers from that date, as few employers have a workforce of more than 120,000. For those employers with a more modest number of employees the start dates vary by number of employees and PAYE reference.
The Pensions Regulator has released a tool which details the start date for auto enrolment. To access the tool and check the start date for a particular PAYE scheme please use the following link.
