National Insurance set to increase 1.25%

As the country weighs up the cost of the pandemic, who will be fronting the bill?

National Insurance

From April 2022, national insurance contributions for sole traders (Class 4) and small business owners (Class 1) will increase 1.25%.

This rise is to fund social care costs, and from 2023 onwards the increase will appear on pay cheques as a separate levy.

Here’s how those increases will translate:

The industry has taken a battering over the past eighteen months, and these tax increases are bound to hit the sector hard.

Smaller construction firms are already struggling to stay afloat, and with rising material and labor costs it’s expected that 50,000 people will lose their job.
