What penalties are there if I don’t comply?

The Pensions Regulator is responsible for ensuring compliance with the automatic enrolment legislation; where there’s a breach it’ll initially focus on education rather than imposing fines for non-compliance. If you don’t meet your duties, the Pension Regulator will initially just tell you to put things right. Any further failure may lead to the government fining you a lot of money. In the event of persistent and deliberate non-compliance, The Pensions Regulator can issue escalating penalty notices of up to £10,000 a day. And ultimately you could face criminal prosecution and even imprisonment.
