Pensions auto-enrolment

Pensions
.

Between October 2012 and April 2017 all employers with UK-based staff will need to automatically enrol all eligible (between age 22 and state pension age, earning above a set minimum) employees into a workplace pension scheme. Each employer has a set staging date by when to do this based on their payroll size. There are compulsory pension contributions from both employers and employees. These will be introduced gradually on a sliding scale until reaching the maximum contribution levels in 2018 of 3% for employers and 4% for employees plus a 1% in tax breaks.
