National Insurance increase reversal - 6 November 2022

Created on  | Last modified on 


When to take action with the National Insurance increase reversal (6 November 2022) in Sage Payroll.


What is the National Insurance increase reversal?

On 6 April 2022, National Insurance Contributions (NICs) increased by 1.25%. The Health and Social Care Levy in April 2023 was to replace the NIC increase.

The Chancellor of the Exchequer confirmed the increase reversal from 6 November 2022. This meant the new Health and Social Care Levy was not introduced in April 2023.
