The CIPP’s latest webcast: Employer NICs holiday for hiring veterans

10 June 2021

Building on a Conservative manifesto pledge from back in 2019, a new employer National Insurance (NI) contributions holiday was made available from 6 April 2021, to organisations that hire eligible veterans. The CIPP’s Policy team has created a new webcast which discusses the details of the relief that are currently known.

The webcast is short and sweet, coming in at just over six minutes, but gives busy payroll professionals an overview of the key elements of the new employer NI contributions holiday and who can claim it.

The following information is included:

  • Definitions and eligibility
  • How employers claim the NI relief
  • Record-keeping requirements
  • Additional key points
  • A link to last year’s associated HMRC consultation

The CIPP’s webcasts are an ideal way to update yourselves with policies that are impacting the work carried out by payroll teams. The latest webcast is ideal for those who do not have the time to pore through the finer details of guidance but want to understand how the new relief works.
