What are the changes?
- From April 2022, national insurance contributions (NICs) are increasing by 1.25% for one year only for employees, employers and the self-employed.
- From April 2023, NI returns to the current rate and HMRC will collect the extra tax as a new Health and Social Care Levy.
This change is being introduced to help the NHS and Social Care recover from the Coronavirus pandemic.
