At your staging/duties start date you’ll need to have a qualifying scheme in place. Your staging/duties start date is when the legal duties obliging you to enrol some or all of your workers into a qualifying pension scheme begin.
At your staging date you’ll need to contact all of your employees and tell them what’s happening. It’s a legal requirement to tell them within six weeks from your staging/duties start date:
– how auto-enrolment affects them;
– their rights; and
– whether you’re delaying working out who to put into a pension scheme.
This communication from the employer to employees is called the ‘notice’.
