National Insurance: What will tax changes cost me?

April 06, 2022

From April 6, employees, employers and the self-employed will all pay £1.25 more in the pound for National Insurance.

  • Employees pay NI on their wages
  • Employers also pay extra NI contributions for staff
  • The self-employed pay NI on their profits

The rise is part of the governments Health & Social Care Levy and will run for one-year. It is to help the NHS recover from the Covid pandemic and to fund social care in England. Working state pensioners will also be required to pay towards this levy.

From April 2022, earnings over £9,880/year will pay the new rate until July 2022, when the starting threshold will then change to earnings above £12,570.
