Important changes to automatic enrolment
From time to time there will be changes to automatic enrolment which may affect your clients' duties as employers. Some changes have been planned and communicated from the beginning of the programme's introduction in the UK, while others may be brought in later by government legislation.
This page provides details of any significant changes to automatic enrolment which you and your clients need to be aware of.
Minimum contribution increases planned by law (phasing)
By law, total minimum pension contributions are required to increase on 6 April 2018 to 5%, and again on 6 April 2019 to 8%.
End of transitional period for defined benefit pension schemes
The transitional period for defined benefit pension schemes ends on 30 September 2017. This means that if your clients have applied the transitional period, they will need to take action to comply with the law.
