Employment Allowance Pays Dividends. Are You In?

Since the introduction of the Employment Allowance in April's Budget, businesses can benefit by having £2000 wiped from their National Insurance bill.

Many employers in MK have already used the allowance to help take on new staff, hire an apprentice or invest in their business. But there are still many businesses who are entitled to claim and as yet haven't.e Employment Allowance in April's Budget, businesses can benefit by having £2000 wiped from their National Insurance bill.

A TV campaign to promote the allowance will be aired on the 7th November urging all businesses to look into their eligibility and how to reap the benefits.

This initiative was introduced after government listened to small businesses who make a vital contribution to the economy and who needed a helping hand to create jobs and stimulate growth. I want to make sure that every business in my constituency is aware of the allowance and makes that claim.

If you would like any further information about how employers can register for the allowance, details can be found at www.gov.uk/employment-allowance
