If your nanny is aged between 22 and the State Pension Age, and has gross earnings of more than £10,000 per annum, follow the link to the Pensions Regulator and work your way through each section.
If the nanny is under 22 and/or earns less than £10,000 per annum, employers should still complete Steps 1, 3, 4 & 5, and continue to monitor any changes that indicate that the nanny has become eligible to be auto enrolled into a pension scheme.
- Employers need to confirm with the Pensions Regulator who they should contact (Primary and Secondary Nominees).
- Six months before the staging date, employers need to make sure they have in place a pension scheme that can be used for automatic enrolment.
- On the staging date, employers’ need to identify who to put into the pension.
- Within 6 weeks of the staging date, employers need to write to their staff to tell them how automatic enrolment applies to them.
- Within 5 months of the staging date, employers need to inform the Pensions Regulator that they have met their legal duties by completing a declaration of compliance.
Apart from completing steps 1 & 2 and depending on the circumstances, clients may be able to nominate their payroll provider as Secondary Contacts to carry out the administration of the remaining steps.
