Employment Allowance – Is your business eligible to claim

The allowance has been in place since 2014.  It currently stands at £3,000 per year and seems to be a permanent fixture. 

Most payroll software automatically takes care of claiming the allowance.  However, have you considered whether you are eligible to claim?  In particular, if you own or partly own two or more businesses. 

HMRC have published guidance notes on connected companies.
