Automatic enrolment (or 'auto-enrolment') is a system that requires employers in the UK to enrol certain employees into a pension scheme and (in most cases) to make contributions to that pension.
Auto-enrolment is being introduced gradually, and The Pensions Regulator (TPR) has assigned each UK employer a 'staging date', which determines when they have to begin carrying out their duties under the system. Employers with fewer than 30 staff have staging dates between 2016 and 2018.
This factsheet provides information about the auto-enrolment duties that employers have. It explains how employers can check what their staging date is and provides a timeline showing when each of their auto-enrolment duties must be carried out.
