What is employment allowance?
It's a great employer benefit that helps you reduce your National Insurance liability by up to £5,000.
Each time you run your payroll you pay less employers’ Class 1 National Insurance until the £5,000 has gone or the tax year ends, whichever is sooner.
Am I eligible?
It's easy to check if you're eligible by referring to HMRC's guidance.
NOTE: HMRC no longer send a confirmation letter for your employment allowance. If your claim is rejected, you'll receive an automated message from HMRC within five working days.
