"National insurance

From 6 April 2008 as previously announced in the pre-budget report:

Upper earnings limit raised by £75 by 2008 and aligned with higher rate threshold by 2009.

Class 4 upper profits limit increases by £3,900"

This does not tally with the tax rate tables or what was announced yesterday, and noone seems to have noticed yet unless I've gone barmy.

UEL was increased by £100 and Class 4 profits limit by £5200 (i.e. £25 more per week than previously announced.)
