Employers to be let off the first £2000 of employer's NIC

8 May 13 | By: Jas Jhooty

The first £2,000 of national insurance contributions (NICs) for employers will be waived under the National Insurance Contributions Bill set out in the Queen’s speech.

The legislation was initially announced by Chancellor George Osborne in the Budget 2013, with the aim of promoting employer growth.

The bill’s employment allowance clause means that 450,000 small organisations will be exempt from paying NICs.

The bill will also extend the general anti-abuse rule to employment tax and prevent the use of offshore payroll organisations.

The changes will take effect from April 2014.
