HMRC Student Loan plan thresholds set to increase
April 6th 2018 will see the HMRC Student Loans thresholds increase. Currently, until April 5th 2018, the Plan 1 loan threshold is £17,775 while the Plan 2 threshold is £21,000.
In the next tax year (i.e. from April 6th 2018) the Plan 1 loan threshold will increase by just over 3% to £18,330 while the Plan 2 threshold will increase by 19% to £25,000.
So what do employers need to do?
When you’re making student loan deductions in the next tax year, be sure to apply this increase to ALL borrowers, including current and future borrowers.
If you’re using payroll software be sure to check with your provider to ensure that the increase is implemented and then continue to report these deductions to HMRC.
