Every employer has a date from when the automatic enrolment duties come into force for their business. This is called an employer’s ‘staging date’. Enter your details into the staging date calculator below.
Calculate your staging date
Automatic enrolment is being staged in over a period of six years, which started with the largest employers in 2012. Staging dates are based on the size of an employer’s PAYE scheme on 1 April 2012. The more people in the PAYE scheme at that time, the earlier the staging date. If you use more than one PAYE scheme, your staging date is based on the total number of people in the largest one that you use.
Staging dates were determined based on the latest PAYE scheme information from HMRC held at 1 April 2012. If you made any changes to your PAYE scheme before this date, they may not be reflected in the data from HMRC.
