Auto-enrolment staging dates

24th February, 2014


‘When is my staging date?’

This is usually the first question asked by business owners and their HR teams when thinking about pension auto-enrolment. With this in mind, the Payroll team at Nottingham and Long Eaton accountants Clayton & Brewill have prepared this quick reference, auto-enrolment staging date timetable.

You can also find out your staging date from the Pension Regulator website but you will need your PAYE code to hand.

For more help on preparing for auto-enrolment read our top tips guide or contact Chloe Hughes, our Payroll Services Manager by email or on 0115 950 3044.
