New companies and employers from 1 October 2017 – Immediate Auto Enrolment duties

Share this article...

From the 1 October 2017, all new employers are required to immediately comply with their employer duties with regard to Auto Enrolment.

Automatic enrolment – employing staff for the first time

It’s important that these new businesses understand what to do and by when, so that they can meet their automatic enrolment duties on time. Legal duties begin on the day the first member of staff starts work. This is known as a ‘duties start date’.
