The Pensions Regulator

I am a new employer – do I still have duties?

We expect all employers to continue to meet their automatic enrolment responsibilities towards their staff, including new employers.

If you are a new employer, you should continue to assess your staff and put them into a pension if they are eligible.

Use our online tool to understand the specific steps you need to take.

You can also use a process called postponement which postpones your duty to assess new or newly eligible staff (and therefore make pension contributions) for up to three months.

Find more information about postponement.
