tPR has published updated versions of its detailed guidance notes about auto- enrolment. The guidance notes have been updated to reflect various changes to the auto-enrolment legislation which came into force on 1 November 2013. For more information about the changes themselves please click here to see our briefing note. tPR's guidance on auto-enrolment can be found here.

The revised guidance comes at a time when tPR is making its first auto-enrolment compliance visits to investigate how employers are implementing auto-enrolment. This is part of a programme of compliance visits and tPR has stated that, over the coming months, it will be visiting employers in other sectors who it considers will face significant compliance challenges when it comes to auto-enrolment.
