Budget Update 2022

Last week, the Chancellor published the Spring Statement outlining changes that will affect your finances and the tax that you pay. Key changes for the 2022/23 tax year include:

Employment Allowance

Employment Allowance will increase by £1,000. This is deducted from your HMRC bill each month and is only applicable against National Insurance.

National Insurance Changes

NI threshold has increased to £12,570 – the same threshold as personal tax. However, the National Insurance rates paid by both individuals and employers have  also increased by 1.25 percentage points as part of the Health and Social Levy – to be spent on NHS and social care across the UK.

Annual Investment Allowance Extension

The temporary £1 million level of the annual investment allowance will be extended to 31st March 2023. This allows businesses to obtain full tax relief on a higher level of qualifying capital expenditure.
