Quick Poll: Changes to National Insurance thresholds

28 March 2022

The Spring Statement took us by surprise with the shock announcement that the Primary Threshold (PT) for National Insurance (NI) would be aligned with the income tax allowance from July 2022.

Within the subsequent documentation, the government cited that July was the earliest this could be implemented to allow payroll software developers time to accommodate the change. This caused some backlash as software providers commented that these changes could be implemented “within hours”. 

Do you think the payroll industry could accommodate an earlier implementation of the changes? We realise that this can be a very complex question to answer, so please select the answer that best fits with your thoughts.
