National Insurance Contributions and Veterans
The Government has set up a relief scheme for those who employ veterans, which became available from 6th April 2021.
The relief is available to all employers of veterans regardless of when the veteran left the regular armed forces, providing they have not previously been employed in a civilian capacity.
The scheme states:
Employers will only be able to claim National Insurance contributions relief on the earnings of qualifying veterans.
A person qualifies as a veteran: –
- if they have served at least one day in the regular armed forces.
This includes anyone who has completed at least one day of basic training.
The relief is only available for 12 consecutive months from the veteran’s first day of civilian employment. The zero-rate can be applied up to the upper secondary threshold.
This relief is available from April 2021.
- From April 2021 to March 2022, employers will need to pay the associated secondary Class 1 National Insurance contributions as normal and then claim it back retrospectively from April 2022 onwards.
From April 2022 onwards, HMRC will put measures in place to enable employers to apply for the relief through PAYE.
