I have no staff, do I still need to do something on auto-enrollment of pensions?

The Pensions Regulator (them again!) answers this pretty thoroughly (see below).

I would add that this is applicable to one person limited companies even if you pay yourself a salary (which in most cases is likely).

……..

Automatic enrolment duties don’t apply when a company or individual are not considered an employer. You won’t have any duties if you meet one of the following criteria:

  • you’re a sole director company, with no other staff
  • your company has a number of directors, none of whom has an employment contract
  • your company has a number of directors, only one of whom has an employment contract
  • your company has ceased trading
  • your company has gone into liquidation
  • your company has been dissolved

Automatic enrolment will apply if more than one director has a contract of employment.
