Once you have re-enrolled your staff, you must  inform The Pensions Regulator to let them know that you have completed your duties.

In order to do so, you need to complete your re-declaration of compliance on The Pension Regulator website.

Please note: Even if you have no staff to re-enrol, you must complete your re-declaration of compliance. Failure to do so could result in a fine from The Pensions Regulator.


You must complete and submit your re-declaration of compliance within five months of the third anniversary of your automatic enrolment staging date. Your re-declaration deadline does not change according to the re-enrolment date you chose.

Please note: After your first re-enrolment process, the re-declaration deadline for all successive re-enrolment will be five months after the third anniversary of your latest re-enrolment  date
