Can I pause pension contributions or take a pension payment holiday?

No. If you’re paying employees, you must continue to make employer contributions at the agreed levels ensuring you meet the statutory minimums (3% for employers) and deduct employee contributions (5%) to meet the minimum requirement of 8%.

Where you’ve already paid staff and deducted contributions, you’ll need to continue to upload your pension data and allow the collection to be made.
