CBI calls for cut in national insurance contributions

The CBI has called on the government to raise the threshold for employee NICs; this could provide an extra £180 p.a. per employee.

This is one of a list of recommendations proposed in the CBI’s new report A Better-Off Britain.

The CBI believes a cut in NICs would give immediate help to those on the lowest incomes and recommends the threshold be raised to £10,500, the planned level of the income tax personal allowance in 2015-16.  For the longer term, the report recommends also reducing employer NICs to provide scope for job creation and pay rises.
