  • From the 6 April 2015, employers will not have to pay the employers Class 1 secondary National Insurance contributions (NICs) for employees under the age of 21. The rate will be 0% for these employees up to the equivalent of the new ‘Upper Secondary Threshold’ (UST).
  • New category letters will be introduced in April 2015 to help support this change.
  • It is therefore important that you make sure you hold the correct date of birth for employees.
  • More information will be sent our nearer the time.
  • Look at our e-learning Becoming an Employer for more information on employing staff.

This is important for us, so thank you for posting. A lot of our lads are quite young so I will make sure we have the right DOB on file for all of them.

I think anything that encourages employers to take on younger people can only be a good thing.

I see a lot of younger people where I live a bit disillusioned about their job prospects so hopefully this will help kickstart a bit of a change in fortune.

Labor legislation is changing again. But it's not in the favor of the workers
