Many bookkeepers are finding their clients rely on them to initiate and administer auto enrolment, with most payroll software having a built in facility to incorporate workplace pension contributions, both employer and employee, with the chosen pension provider.

 

Future staging dates are as follows:

 

 

New employer between Oct 16 & June 17: 1 Jan 18

 

New employer between July 17 & Sept 17: 1 Feb 18

 

New employer from Oct 17: Immediate start

 

Automatic fines will be imposed if a workplace pension is not in place on or before the staging date
