13 September 2012
The Department of Work and Pensions have published a consultation document on updating the auto enrolment thresholds for the 2013/2014 tax year.

The DWP continues to work with three principles that were identified as part of the previous year deliberation: i) bringing the right people into scope, ii) finding the right minimum level of saving and iii) balancing costs and benefits for individuals and employers.

The DWP’s provisional proposal updates the threshold levels and, for operational payroll simplicity, aligns these with existing tax and National Insurance thresholds.

Earnings Trigger£8,105£9,205PAYE Tax Threshold
Lower Qualifying Earnings£5,564c £5,720NIC Lower Earnings
Upper Qualifying Earnings£42,475£41,450NIC Upper Earnings

The DWP consultation document can be found here. The consultation closes on 17 October 2012.
