Since 2012 larger companies have had to automatically enrol certain workers into a pension scheme. This is gradually being rolled out to smaller businesses in stages - as an employer you will need to make a contribution towards your employees' pensions when the time comes.
The date when the auto-enrolment law is 'switched on' for your business is known as your 'staging date'. Use the tool on the Pensions Regulator website to find out your auto-enrolment staging date.
You can also make sure you are ready when your staging date arrives with this auto-enrolment planner.
