The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) reviews the earnings thresholds for auto-enrolment every year and has proposed the below AE Thresholds for the next tax year 2021-2022.

The lower and upper levels of qualifying earnings match with the National Insurance Contributions of the next tax year 2021-2022. Also, we can see that the proposed auto-enrolment earnings trigger remains the same as for the current tax year 2020-2021.

The AE thresholds have been laid before the Parliament and these proposals are subject to the Parliamentary process and so may change.
