The government has announced a ‘Health and Social Care Levy’ to be spent on the NHS and social care across the UK.

National Insurance Contributions (NICs) will increase by 1.25% for one year for employees, employers and the self-employed from April 2022.

HMRC have requested that for the tax year 2022-23 all payslips contain a message to inform employees that the increase in their National Insurance contributions will go towards funding the NHS, Health and Social Care. Moneysoft will include this message automatically on payslips from April 2022.

See our guide Health and Social Care Levy for more details.
