The Pensions Regulator

How much will I have to pay into a pension scheme?

The law sets a minimum level of contributions to be paid. At the moment, the total contribution is 5% of your member of staff’s earnings, with at least 2% coming from you, the employer.    

From 6 April 2019, all your members of staff must receive minimum pension contributions of 8%, with at least 3% coming from you, the employer.

You and your staff can choose to pay more than the minimum contributions if you wish.
