Budget changes that affect employers

National Insurance

As revealed in the Budget on 6 March 2024, there will be an additional reduction in National Insurance rates starting from 6 April 2024. This adjustment lowers the rate from the existing 10% to 8%, resulting in savings of £18.72 per month for an employee on the National Minimum Wage (effective April 2024) working 40 hours a week.


The UK Government also confirmed it’s moving forward with its proposals for pension pot-for-life, granting savers the choice to request their employers to direct pension contributions into an existing pot. More will be shared on this when it has been released.
