  • Hammond's NICs U-turn elicits mixed reactions


    Genevieve Moore, partner at Blick Rothenberg, commented, "The self-employed are a key part of the UK economy, they do not get paid holidays, they do not have the security of earning a wage even when it's a quiet day, if they don't work, they don't earn.

    "They take the risk of a downturn in the market, they are the true heart of the entrepreneurs of the UK economy. The proposals to increase Class 4 NI rates, so they were almost on par with that paid by employees, were ludicrous and I am relieved to see Hammond has come to his sense."

    However, Moore warned, "Whilst the chancellor has decided to not proceed with the increase in Class 4 now, the stage is set for the future. Class 4 NICs will increase in the future, perhaps with a bigger jump in the rate in one year, rather than 1% increases staggered over several years."

  • Scottish taxes are out of kilter


    Susan Spash, a partner with accountants Blick Rothenberg, told the FT: “The problem is caused by the fact that they have only partially devolved tax which leads to anomalous results. Taxpayers with only employment income can be paying the highest amount of tax compared with taxpayers with a mix of savings and dividend income. A Scottish resident with non-savings non-dividend income between £43,000 and £45,000 will always be worse off by a maximum of £400.”
