Employers’ newsletter - Employment allowance

This allows businesses and/or charities to claim up to £3,000 per year off your National Insurance bill, provided you are an employer. The allowance will reduce your employers’ secondary Class 1 National Insurance, each time you payroll until £3,000 has gone or the tax year ends, whichever occurs sooner. You can only claim against Class 1 National Insurance you’ve paid, up to a maximum of £3,000 per year. You can still claim the allowance if you have paid less than £3,000. If you are part of a group, only one of the companies within the group can make the claim. The allowance aims to support smaller businesses with the cost of taking on more staff.

If you need any further support on claiming the employment allowance, please get in touch.
