Automatic enrolment – action required
Helping you see what it means for you as an employer
Although automatic enrolment may not affect your business immediately, as a valued customer, we want to help you prepare. The date the new regulations apply to you (your staging date), depends on the total number of employees in your workforce (PAYE scheme as at April 2012) and the PAYE reference numbers. This must be confirmed with The Pensions Regulator (TPR). Although we hold information on the number of your employees that currently contribute to your scheme with us, critically, we also need to know your confirmed staging date. We'd urge you to contact them if you need confirmation.
To help us help you prepare for the new regulations simply fill in your details below, that’s all we need.
We’ll use this information to help us plan how we can help you prepare.
