£2000 National Insurance Contribution Allowance

The government has announced that it is giving up to £2000 in Class 1 NIC allowances to employers from April 2014. This means that your payment to HMRC can be reduced by the amount of employers NIC due, up to a maximum of £2000.

Not all companies qualify. If you employ someone for personal, household or domestic work, such as a nanny, au pair, chauffeur, gardener or care support worker you cannot use the allowance. If you have multiple companies, then only one company can claim.

SSP – Statutory Sick Pay

From the 2014/2015 tax year, companies will no longer be able to claim back any of the Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) that you pay out to employees
