From 6th April 2022, Health and Social Care Levy was introduced to fund investment in the NHS, health and social care
and the rates of National Insurance Contributions (NICs) were increased by 1.25% and added to the existing NHS allocation.
HMRC asked the employers and software developers to include a temporary generic message "1.25% uplift in NICs, funds
NHS, health & social care." on payslips to explain the reason for the NICs uplift.
The government further announced in year reductions to National Insurance rates and the cancellation of the Health and
Social Care Levy as a separate tax. The "1.25% uplift of National Insurance contribution (NIC) rates" was reversed from
6th November 2022. HMRC also asked the generic Social and Health Care message on payslips to be removed.
Hence the payslip message "1.25% uplift in NICs, funds NHS, health & social care." will not appear on the payslips w.e.f
6th November 2022.
