Auto Enrolment Update

As from 1st October 2017 there is no longer a staging date for auto enrolment purposes. Where a new PAYE scheme is set up after this date, then the employer’s legal duties with regards auto enrolment start immediately from the first pay date for employees.

It is still possible to postpone the employer’s duties for a period of 3 months from the start of employment.

For all new employers we would strongly recommend that you seek professional advice on the subject of auto enrolment to avoid potential penalties.
