National Insurance increase 6 April 2022

Mar 24 2022

On 7 September 2021, the government announced a new 1.25% Health and Social Care Levy to fund investment in the NHS, health and social care. The Levy will be introduced from April 2022 through a 1.25% uplift in National Insurance contributions (NICs) for working age employees and employers.

Employees will not see this increase detailed separately on their payslip until April 2023. The Levy will then be formally separated from NICs and will also apply to the earnings of individuals working above State Pension age.
