The Pensions Regulator (TPR) has launched a website to help small employers through the auto-enrolment process.
The step-by-step website is intended to guide 1.8m small and micro employers that have staging dates in the next two years through the process.
The guide is targeted at those employers who may have little or no pensions experience, including those with just one or two staff.
The website provides clear and accessible information for employers on what to do and by when, using videos, animations and infographics.
Pension minister Baroness Altmann said: "Automatic enrolment has been a great success so far but, as we start the process of rolling it out to the UK's smallest employers, we need to tailor our support to make sure it is fit for purpose.
She added the new guide was "an excellent initiative" to help the smallest employers fulfil their auto-enrolment duties.
The new online journey includes:
A duties checker to help employers understand which duties apply to them. There are interactive questions which allow an employer to quickly establish if they will need to put any staff into a pension scheme.
A step-by-step guide for those who do not employ staff eligible for automatic enrolment, including how to provide a pension scheme for employees who still ask to join one.
It provides a streamlined journey for those with domestic workers and those who employ a personal care assistant.
Videos, animation and infographics all helping employers understand what automatic enrolment is and what they need to consider when choosing a pension scheme.
TPR urges all employers to use the duties checker to find out which legal duties apply to them. Employers will receive customised communications relevant to their situation after using the duties checker to tell the regulator about their circumstances.
TPR executive director for automatic enrolment Charles Counsell said: "Many micro employers have just one member of staff. We are helping them to navigate a straightforward path to successfully completing automatic enrolment."

The Pension Schemes Bill has completed its third reading, crossing its latest hurdle in the House of Commons.
An amendment to the Pensions Schemes Bill which would have seen people given a pre-booked Pension Wise appointment ahead of accessing their retirement savings has been defeated.
A proposal to ensure savers receive a Pension Wise appointment prior to accessing their retirement pot has received cross-party support in parliament, while Labour seeks net-zero pensions by 2050.
Pension scams are not just about the money lost, but the lives devastated, says Nicola Parish, so the industry must unite to defeat this scourge.
