Consultation on supporting veterans' transition to civilian life through employment

Close date: 5 October 2020

The Government consults on its plan to introduce national insurance contributions relief for employers that employ military veterans, for the first 12 months of their employment. The consultation seeks views on, among other things, what qualifying service in the armed forces a veteran should have served to qualify for the scheme, what types of employment should be included within the scheme and whether or not the relief should be available before 6 April 2021 (the Government's proposed implementation date).
