The Pensions Regulator

Can I complete my re-declaration earlier or later? Waiting for specific dates is a burden and I want to get it done and out the way?

You must complete and submit your re-declaration of compliance within five months of the third anniversary of your automatic enrolment duties start date or staging date. You must not complete your re-declaration later than this.

We recommend that you use the third anniversary of your duties start date or staging date as the date to assess your staff for re-enrolment. So, although you have five months to complete your re-declaration, we recommend that you do this as soon as possible after you have assessed your staff.

If you want to complete your re-declaration of compliance earlier than the third anniversary of your duties start date or staging date you can use our re-enrolment date tool to see your available dates and to work out the earliest date that you can choose to assess your staff for re-enrolment. You can then complete your re-declaration of compliance as soon as possible after the date you have chosen. Your re-declaration deadline doesn’t change if you choose a different date to assess your staff.

Whether you have staff to put back into your scheme or not, you must complete a re-declaration of compliance to tell us how you have met your duties. Remember, re-enrolment and re-declaration are your legal duties and if you don't act you could be fined.
