Pension Contributions to Increase in 2018 & 2019

By law, on 6 April 2018, you are required to increase the amount of minimum contributions that you make into your staff's automatic enrolment pension to at least of 2% of qualifying earnings. 

Members of staff will have to pay the shortfall needed to make the total minimum contribution up to 5%, including your contribution.

The minimum contribution levels will rise again on 6 April 2019, with you paying a minimum of 3% towards the pension, and the total minimum contribution reaching 8% - with your staff making up the difference.

Please see below a summary of the required current and future contributions;

​Date Effective ​Employer minimum contribution ​Staff contribution ​Total minimum contribution
