2016/17 auto-enrolment thresholds

Hot off the press from the government are the proposed pension auto-enrolment triggers and band earnings for the next tax year. Such detail is of course important given that automatic enrolment is now a legal requirement for all employers (or at least will be once all have passed their staging dates).

So according to the document the following are the proposed new thresholds (we have included this years’ rates for reference purposes as well):

Current (15/16)

  • Auto-enrolment earnings trigger £10,000
  • Lower limit qualifying earnings band £5,824
  • Upper limit qualifying earnings band £42,385
