What is a duties start date or staging date?

If you employed staff on or after 1 October 2017 your legal duties for automatic enrolment begin on the day your first member of staff starts work. This is known as your duties start date and you cannot change this date.

If you employed staff before 1 October 2017 your automatic enrolment duties start on your staging date.

If you employed someone between 2 April 2017 and 30 September 2017, find out when your duties will start.

You must be prepared for this date. Use our online tool to find out what you need to do to meet your legal duties for automatic enrolment.
