Use postponement to delay the organisation's pensions auto-enrolment duties

Key points

  • There are various reasons why an employer might want to use postponement to delay its pensions auto-enrolment duties, including to avoid the cost of pension provision for casual workers who will only be with the organisation for a short period.
  • Where the employer wishes to use postponement in relation to some or all of its workers, it will need to issue specified information to those affected.
  • Workers can still opt into a pension scheme voluntarily during the postponement period.
