Automatic enrolment contribution increases delayed

Bevan & Buckland AccountantsAutomatic enrolment contribution increases delayed

The Chancellor announced in the Spending Review and Autumn Statement 2015 that the Government is aligning two scheduled increases in the minimum level automatic enrolment contributions with the start of the tax year.

To simplify the administration of automatic enrolment for the smallest employers in particular, the next two phases of minimum contribution rate increases will be aligned to the tax years. Instead of increases taking place in October, they will now occur in April of the following year.

Under the current timetable minimum level contributions are scheduled to rise from 2% to 5% in October 2017, and from 5% to 8% in October 2018. These increases will now take effect in April 2018 and April 2019.
