Some of my staff have reduced their hours and their pay has also reduced. Do I still need to pay contributions?

If your staff’s earnings fall below £192 a week (£833 a month) during a pay period but remain above £120 a week (£520 a month) you will still need to pay contributions.

If they earn below this amount, you may not need to pay any contributions and they may remain in the scheme during this period. This will depend on the pension scheme rules so you should discuss any contribution payments with your pension provider.

You will need to restart contributions once your staff resume their normal hours and pay, or earn above £120 a week (£520 a month)
