Are you expected to submit a Declaration of Compliance on behalf of clients?
27 June 2017
Employers need to complete a Declaration of Compliance (DoC) within five months of their staging date (or duties start date) to tell The Pensions Regulator how they have met their automatic enrolment duties; whether they had anyone to put into a pension or not.
Employers who were late declaring their compliance have told The Pensions Regulator that they thought that this task was being done by someone else – either by their pension provider or their business adviser.
Help your clients to avoid a fine – make sure the DoC is completed and submitted on time.
The Pensions Regulator has a checklist on their website to help.
