Changes to the Employment Allowance

Source: HM Revenue & Customs | | 09/07/2019

It was announced as part of the Autumn Budget 2018 measures that access to the Employment Allowance was to be restricted. From 6 April 2020, the £3,000 NIC Employment Allowance will only be available to employers with employer NIC liabilities of under £100,000 in the previous tax year. Connected employers will have their contributions aggregated for this purpose.

The draft legislation necessary to put this change in place has recently been published and is open for comment until 20 August 2019. The accompanying draft statutory note sets out the information requirements for employers claiming the Employment Allowance from April 2020. A final version of the regulations and guidance is expected to be published in October 2019.

There are currently a number of excluded categories where employers cannot claim the employment allowance. This includes:

  • Limited companies with a single director and no other employees;
  • Persons employed for personal, household or domestic work, such as a nanny or au pair (unless they are a care or support worker);
  • You are a public body or business doing more than half your work in the public sector;
  • You are a service company working under ‘IR35 rules’ and your only income is the earnings of the intermediary.
