Each business has a deadline to start complying with the laws (known as a ‘staging date’) and this date depends on how many people you have on your payroll. You can find out your staging date here.
If you fail to comply, The Pensions Regulator can take enforcement measures, including issuing penalty notices. These are a fixed penalty notice of £400 and a daily fine of up to £10,000 depending on the number of staff you have. They can also issue a civil penalty for cases where you fail to pay contributions due. This is a financial penalty of up to £5,000 for individuals and up to £50,000 for organisations.
