Your Staging Date is the date that Auto Enrolment comes into effect for your organisation. The Pensions Regulator has provided a timeline for the allocation of Staging Dates for employers, according to the size of their PAYE Scheme as at April 2012. The Staging Date timeline can be found on their website.

Your Staging Date cannot be changed or delayed, but you can choose to postpone Auto Enrolment for up to three months after the Staging Date.  More information on postponement can be found on the NHS Employers website.

For more information on Auto-Enrolment, see the FAQs available on our website.
