1. DC scheme return 2022: Important changes to process
The next scheme return for defined contribution (DC) schemes is due to start from early July 2022.
Some schemes will need to complete the scheme return in two parts this year. Part 1 is an online form, part 2 is in Exchange as usual.
If you're expecting to receive your scheme return in two parts this year, part 1 will be emailed to your designated scheme return contact or trustees according to the details we currently hold in Exchange. This email will be sent from paperlessSRN@thepensionsregulator.gov.uk and will contain a link to the online form.
