Phasing in of the pensions auto-enrolment requirements started on 1 October 2012, with the UK’s largest employers. Each employer must comply with the requirements from its own “staging date”, which depends on the size of its PAYE scheme and its reference number. Many employers have now staged. Qualifying workers are eligible to be automatically enrolled into a pension scheme while others may ask to be enrolled.
Pensions schemes must meet minimum requirements to be a qualifying scheme for pensions auto-enrolment purposes.
