Set up Employment Allowance in QuickBooks Online Standard Payroll

by Intuit Updated 4 months ago

Employment Allowance is a great way for businesses to reduce their yearly Employer Class 1 National Insurance by up to £5,000 per tax year.

To see if you qualify, you can check out the HMRC website. If you do qualify, make sure to let HMRC know directly.

Set up Employment Allowance

Make sure payroll is set up before you continue. If you're setting it up for the first time:

  1. Go to Employees or Payroll menu.
  2. Select Set up your payroll and follow the instructions.
  1. Select the ⚙️ gear icon, then Account and settings.
  2. Select Employees or Payroll menu.
  3. Look for Employer NI relief and select the pencil icon.
  4. If you qualify, select Yes, I qualify. We'll create an EPS filing to confirm your eligibility and guide you to submit it to HMRC.
  5. Enter the amount of Employment Allowance you've used this tax year.
    You can find this information by signing in to your HMRC account (PAYE for Employers).
  6. Select Save. You can either send the EPS now to let HMRC know about your eligibility or do it later.
