Auto Enrolment Staging Dates

Find Out Your Staging Date

You’ll need your PAYE reference to find out your staging date. If you don’t know your PAYE reference, it can be found on a P6/P9 coding notice or on your white payslip booklet P30BC.

Ideally, you should start planning 12 months before your auto enrolment staging date. The earlier you start to prepare, the smoother the transition will be.

You don’t need to be an expert in auto enrolment, but understanding what decisions you need to make will certainly ease the process. The NOW: Pensions step-by-step guide to auto enrolment helps to break the whole thing down in to manageable pieces.

Your staging date for auto enrolment depends on the size of your largest PAYE scheme as at October 1st 2017. To look up your staging date, you’ll need to know your PAYE reference. Simply type it into our staging date tool below and click “show my staging date”
