Employers can sign up with us as far in advance of their staging date as they like. Their scheme will lie dormant (at no cost) prior to their staging date.
Planning ahead really shouldn’t be underestimated. Leaving auto enrolment to the last minute will inevitably result in increased administrative pressure and unnecessary stress. The simple truth is, the longer businesses allow themselves to implement the changes, the easier the process will be.
