Employees under 21
Just a reminder that from 6 April 2015, employers no longer need to pay employer’s NIC for employees under 21. They will need to use new category letters. The new rate will be 0% up to the upper secondary threshold (equivalent to the upper earnings limit from 6 April 2015), although above this threshold NICs at the usual rate will be payable.
Employers submitting information on employees over 16 but under 21 will need to use a new rate of seven NIC category letters, which are set out in the recent Employer Bulletin although three of them related to ‘contracted-out’ so will only be valid for 2015/16.
