What are the basic things I need to do to comply with auto-enrolment?

The auto-enrolment obligations are set out in legislation and The Pensions Regulator is responsible for ensuring compliance with the auto-enrolment legislation. So, it’s a good idea to make yourself aware of your basic responsibilities.

You must:

  • Put employees into a pension scheme and pay into their pension pots
  • Provide a declaration of compliance to the Pensions Regulator for the pension scheme every 3 years
  • Keep details of all opt outs for 4 years
  • Keep specific records for each employee for 6 years.


The Pensions Regulator website has more information to help you comply with the legislation.
