New Starter Form
03 Aug
The New Starter form has been revised to include bespoke fields and new section for apprenticeships. This means Payroll will have the detail required to populate an apprentices contract of employment and so they can ensure schools do not pay employer NI contributions for those apprentices who are under 25. Schools should ensure they delete any copies of the old form they hold and start using the new form with immediate effect. Click here to see the revised form.
