with No Comments

The government has confirmed that for the 2020/21 tax year, National Insurance Contribution thresholds will increase to £9,500 per year.

A typical employee will save an amount of approximately £104 in 2020/21, and the self-employed will save £78.

Upper NIC thresholds will remain at £50,000, whereas all other thresholds will rise with inflation.

Employers (secondary) thresholds on national insurance will also see a rise from £719 per month to £732 per month.  For many small business owner managers who take a mix of salary and dividends from their businesses, this will become the optimal salary.
