Employment Allowance

Church Treasurers are reminded that from 6 April 2014 employers (including charities) can claim the new Employment Allowance to reduce employer Class 1 National Insurance contributions (NICs) by up to a maximum of £2,000 in each tax year.  It is stressed that the Employment Allowance can only be set against employer contributions and not employee contributions. Neither is it available against Class 1A contributions.
