Members of the public can now find their National Insurance rate with our very own calculator as employees, from January 6, will pay just 10%.

Chancellor Jeremy Hunt announced employees will pay just a tenth of their National Insurance contributions in the new Autumn Statement, bringing a drop in payments for those in work.

Dropping from 12% to 10% for those earning between £12,571 and £50,271 per year means savings for those paying out on their National Insurance. For the average full-time salary of £34,963, a saving of £448 per year can be expected.

Changes will also be made to the self-employed who will find themselves making savings of 2% after the National Insurance pay-in was decreased from 12% to 10%.

Chancellor Hunt said he will abolish the "Class 2" National Insurance charge for the self-employed making more than £12,570. An average self-employed person will reportedly make a saving of £192 per year.

Those in "Class 4" for the National Insurance brackets who find themselves paying out 9% on their earnings, will see their percentage drop to 8% due to the upcoming budget.
