Mandatory Gender Pay Gap Reporting
Employers will more than 250 employees as at 5 April will have to begin reporting on their gender pay gap.
Employers with an annual pay bill of at least £3 million will have to pay a levy of 0.5% of their payroll costs.
Immigration Skills Charge
Most employers that employ migrants in skilled areas will have to pay £1,000 per employee, per year. Small or charitable organisations pay the reduced amount of £364. The idea is to encourage businesses to train British staff to fill jobs, rather than take on migrant workers. Certain exemptions will apply in order to help retain those who are considered vital to growing the British economy.
