When does TUPE Apply?

This note applies to transfers occurring on or after 31 January 2014 (when changes were made to the TUPE Regulations).  If you are dealing with a transfer which occurred prior to this date, or if you are unsure as to when the transfer occurred, it is recommended that you take specific legal advice.


TUPE applies on a relevant transfer, which covers two types of events:

  • a business transfer; and
  • a service provision change.

These events are not mutually exclusive; some situations could amount to a business transfer as well as a service provision change.
