Registration is the legal requirement to submit information to the regulator about how you’ve complied with your employer duties. If you do not provide the information required you may face enforcement action and incur a fine.
Your registration deadline is four calendar months from your staging date. For example, if your staging date is 1 November 2013, you must submit your registration no later than 28 February 2014.
Employers staging on or after 1 January 2014 will have a new registration deadline due to a change in the law. These changes will extend the time an employer has to complete registration.
If your staging date is 1 January 2014, your registration deadline will be 2 June 2014. If your staging date is 1 February 2014, your registration deadline will be 30 June 2014.
All employers staging on or after 1 April 2014 will have five calendar months from their staging date to register.
Note: The timeline planner currently reflects the registration deadline of four months. This will be updated when the change in law comes into force.
You need to provide the information online. You’ll need to provide information like the details of the pension scheme you’ve used for automatic enrolment and how many people you’ve automatically enrolled into it.
Even if you haven’t automatically enrolled anyone, you’ll still need to complete registration. We recommend starting registration as soon as you can. Adding the required information as it becomes available will help make sure you don’t miss your deadline. Registration will be complete once you make the declaration and submit all the required information to us.
