Government to monitor national insurance employment allowance

Houses of parliament

Spring Budget 2017: The government has announced that national insurance (NI) employment allowance is being actively monitored by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).

Chancellor Philip Hammond announced the move in the Spring Budget 2017, following reports of some organisations using schemes to avoid paying the correct NI contributions.

If avoidance continues, the government has said it will consider taking further action.
