200,000 UK employers have already conquered auto-enrolment duties, says TPR

More than 200,000 UK employers have now completed their auto-enrolment duties, according to figures from The Pensions Regulator (TPR).

In a recent Declaration of Compliance report, the TPR said that approximately 6.5 million workers across the UK have now been automatically enrolled on a workplace pension scheme – more than 960,000 of whom work for ‘small and micro employers’.

Under revisions to rules for workplace pensions introduced earlier this year, auto-enrolment has been made a compulsory requirement for all employers – who will need to ensure that they are fully compliant before their staging dates.

Staging dates vary between businesses – and can be determined using each individual business’ PAYE reference number.

The Government expects businesses nationwide to have automatically enrolled all of their employees who earn £10,000 a year or more onto a company pension scheme by this date.

The latest filing dates fall into 2018 – but yours could be much sooner. Are you prepared?
