In the 2016-17 financial year, the standard non-taxable allowance for an individual is £11,000.00. If the employee has a standard tax code of 1100L they will begin to pay tax when earning £917.00 per month. This is based on them working from 6th April 2016, and working continually throughout the year.
National insurance for 2016-17 begins to be deducted when an employee earns £672.00 per month.
If your employee is paid more than £672.00 per month, but less than £917.00 per month they will have NI deducted from their pay, but no tax.
If your employee is paid weekly the tax threshold is £211.53, whereas the NI threshold is £155.00.
