The Pensions Regulator animation on Duties Checker tool

26 April 2016

The Pensions Regulator (TPR) has produced a short, useful animation that takes the viewer through the automatic enrolment ‘duties checker’ tool.

The duties checker tool was introduced in October 2015 as part of a new online journey to help with the challenge of automatic enrolment for small and micro employers.

The tool is designed to help employers understand which duties apply to them and there are interactive questions which allow an employer to quickly establish if they will need to put any staff into a pension scheme.

In order to use the duties checker employers or their advisers will need some information to hand, such as PAYE reference, letter code (which can be found on the letter sent by TPR) and the age and approximate earning of anyone they employ.

You can watch the animation on TPR’s website.
