Changing your staging date
You may feel your staging date isn’t suitable for your organisation.
If you want to start meeting your new duties ahead of the legal deadline, you can bring your staging date forward from a list available from the The Pensions Regulator. You’ll need to choose a new staging date and let TPR know at least a month before that date. You’ll also need to confirm that the pension scheme you’re using agrees to the change, so it’s a good idea to approach them about it sooner rather than later.

Postponing automatic enrolment
You may be able to use a waiting period of up to three months from your staging date before you have to automatically enrol any workers. This is also known as postponement. If you do this, eligible jobholders and those workers with the right to opt-in can still join during this time.
