Statistically 20% of companies did not claim the employment allowance when it was introduced in 2014/15 and it may have been missed in 2015/16 and 2016/17 as a result.

The employment allowance came into effect from April 2014 and was originally £2000. It increased to £3000 from April 2016. All is not lost if you have not yet submitted your claim, but be aware that single director companies are not eligible for the allowance and restrictions apply if an employer employs illegal workers.

If you would like our help in understanding whether you are eligible for this relief and how to go about claiming it, please do contact us.
