What is my staging date?

Your staging date for auto enrolment depends on the size of your largest PAYE scheme as at April 2012. To look up your staging date, you’ll need to know the your PAYE reference. 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.

You can find your company’s auto enrolment staging date using our staging date calculator.
