What to expect in 2011?

Employment Legislation Reminders

 

Throughout 2010 we have seen an abundance of changes in Employment Legislation. To keep you on the right track, here are a few reminders of what to expect in 2011 and where you can find further information if you need to.

 

National Minimum Wage (NMW)

Changes to travel and subsistence schemes

Announced in July, from the 1st January 2011 the NMW legislation will be amended to make clear that employers that operate travel and subsistence schemes will not be able to take the expenses paid to workers under the scheme into account when calculating whether NMW has been paid.

 

This means employers will need to ensure that they pay their workers in addition to any payments workers are entitled to under the travel and subsistence scheme. Read more

 

VAT Increase

 

Announced by the Coalition Government in the July budget, VAT is to increase from 17.5% to 20% from the 4th January 2011. Click here for an HM Revenue & Customers Guide to prepare.
