You can choose to postpone auto-enrolment for up to three months, although you can’t move your staging date back. The staging/duties start date remains the date that your auto-enrolment duties start to apply.
Postponement gives you up to three months extra to work out who you need to put into a pension scheme – either from your staging/duties start date or from the date any future employees join your company.
Please note though, you’ll have to let your employees know if you’re postponing (within six weeks of the date postponement starts), and they can still ask to join earlier. And you can only delay by choosing the postponement option in our Simply Tailor sign-up process.
