When have the minimum contributions changed?

The minimum contributions have been introduced in three stages known as phasing.

If the qualifying earnings basis is being used, the minimum contribution until 5 April 2018 was 2% with at least 1% from the employer. Between 6 April 2018 and 5 April 2019 the minimum contribution was increased to 5% with at least 2% from the employer, and from 6 April 2019 the minimum contribution increases to 8% with at least 3% from the employer.
