£2,000 NIC Employment Allowance and Benefits

Hi All,

I have a couple of questions about the Employers NI Allowance, but I haven't been able to find the answers myself.

My client has only one employee, with a relatively low salary, but is provided with some P11d benefits. There is some Eers NI on the salary but not £2,000.

Can the remainder of the allowance be used against the Class 1A incurred there?

I will look forward to hearing from you soon.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Good luck finding it though as HMRC rarely make details easy to find. I found this via a third party

To be fair

A search for "Employment allowance" on the HMRC website brings up this news item, which says "... claim the Employment Allowance of up to £2,000 against their secondary Class 1 NICs liability from 6 April 2014."  Class 1 NIC is not Class 1A NIC on benefits.
