HMRC have issued the take-up rates for the Employment Allowance which would have saved qualifying businesses up to £2,000 in employers’ national insurance contributions during the tax year 2014/2015.

Of the 1.25m businesses that were expected to benefit from the allowance 89% did claim and benefit from the allowance.

Regionally take-up rate varied with 95% in Yorkshire and The Humber applying compared to only 84% in Northern Ireland.

Professional, Scientific and Technical businesses accounted for 18% of all businesses to benefit.

Umbrella Accountants help to ensure small businesses benefit from allowances and incentives to which they are entitled.
