The qualifying earnings band and earnings trigger amounts for auto enrolment have been published. The earnings trigger for 2019/20 will remain at £10,000 and the qualifying earnings band will be £6,136 - £50,000.
The automatic enrolment earnings trigger determines who is eligible to be automatically enrolled into a workplace pension by their employer in terms of how much they earn. There is also a qualifying earnings band in respect of which contributions to many auto enrolment schemes are made – the band is defined by the lower earnings limit and the upper earnings limit. The earnings trigger and the qualifying earnings bands are often jointly referred to as the Automatic Enrolment earnings thresholds. They are set in legislation and reviewed annually. It is a statutory requirement that the Secretary of State reviews all three thresholds in each tax year.
