I am pleased to be able to let you know that I have today [26th January 2023] announced the outcome of the review of the Automatic Enrolment Earnings Trigger and Qualifying Earnings Band for 2023/24.
The thresholds will be maintained at their 2022/23 values:
- The automatic enrolment earnings trigger will remain at £10,000;
- The lower earnings limit of the qualifying earnings band will remain at £6,240;
- The upper earnings limit of the qualifying earnings band will remain at £50,270.
The analysis supporting this decision is available on the http://www.gov.uk website.
I am grateful to the payroll community for the role that they play in the continuing success of automatic enrolment, which is transforming the retirement prospects for millions of workers.
