Automatic enrolment: Don’t let your clients’ holiday plans risk a fine

11 August 2016

If your client's declaration of compliance deadline is 31 August, you can help them to avoid a fine by starting the declaration as soon as possible and ensuring that it’s completed on time.

Note that Monday 29 August is a Bank Holiday.

It is important that your client completes a declaration of compliance and submits it to The Pensions Regulator so that they know what actions have been taken to meet their duties. This needs to be done within 5 months of your client's staging date. If you are performing some of the tasks on their behalf, then make sure you agree with your client who will complete  the declaration.

The Pensions Regulator produces a declaration checklist to help gather all the information needed to complete the declaration.
