As a boost to business, the Chancellor announced in the 2013 Budget that from April 2014 every business and charity will be entitled to a £2,000 Employment Allowance to reduce their employer National Insurance bill. Make sure you claim it.
The allowance is simple to claim. It will be delivered through standard payroll software and/or HMRC’s Real-Time Information system. Employers will only need to confirm their eligibility through their regular payroll processes.
