As an employer you have workplace pensions duties which mean you will need to automatically enrol certain staff into a pension scheme and make contributions to it. You must assess staff, put those you need to into a pension scheme, and tell them about automatic enrolment. You should start planning for automatic enrolment 12 months before your staging date. This is the date your duties come into effect.
