Know your Workforce

It’s likely that you’ll have employer duties for all of your staff on PAYE. You’ll probably have to automatically enrol at least some of them. What you’ll need to do depends on their ages and how much they earn.

You should make a quick assessment of your workforce upfront to see if you’ll have any staff who you’ll need to automatically enrol. If you do, you’ll need a pension scheme, so you should start thinking about which pension scheme you’ll use. We can put you in touch with our recommended pension provider.

You’ll have to do a formal assessment later, on your staging date (or after postponement), so you know exactly who you’ll have to automatically enrol. To find out more, see the ‘From your staging date’ task below.
