Be aware of your Staging Date

On the ‘nominate a contact’ letter there will have been a staging date. This date is very important as it is the date that you will need to run a pension scheme from.

Regardless of whether or not your employees are eligible to be enrolled onto your pensions you must still operate a pension scheme.

If you are unsure of your Staging Date, this will have been on the letters from the Pension Regulator that you have, if you cannot find this then please click here to retrieve this.
