Employment Allowance

From April 2016, employers will be able to pay 4 full time members of staff at the living wage without incurring employers national insurance.  This is thanks to the increase in the employment allowance increase from £2,000 to £3,000 per year.

The employment allowance was introduced in April 2014 to encourage and support employers to employ more staff without incurring additional employers national insurance contributions.  This is the same reason that the government will now withdraw employment support allowances from sole director companies at the same time.
