The Pensions Act 2008 set up UK Auto Enrolment and set out the penalties that can be imposed on companies by the Pensions Regulator for Drummond Laurie Chartered Accountantsnon compliance. The penalties can be significant; fines ranging from a flat £400, £50 a day up to £10,000 a day and even imprisonment for up to two years.

To date, the Pensions Regulator has sought to solve issues informally.  As an employer you will receive lots of communications from the regulator in advance of your staging date, you have no excuse!  We’re noticing a change and fines are now being issued as thousands of smaller, less prepared companies start to enrol.

The key to avoiding penalties is to:

  • Be set up correctly on time;
  • Remain compliant; and
  • To fix issues quickly (otherwise fines can build up every day that you are non compliant).
