Check the organisation's pensions auto-enrolment staging date

Key points

  • The staging date is the date on which the pensions auto-enrolment duties will start applying to the employer.
  • There is a timetable of staging dates. The employer's staging date is determined by the number of people in its largest PAYE scheme on 1 April 2012. The final staging date is February 2018.
  • From 1 October 2017, any new businesses will have an immediate obligation to offer pensions.
  • Employers can bring their staging date forward, for example to avoid staging during a particularly busy period for the organisation.
