National Insurance Rates 2020-2021

There is a new set of National Insurance rates tables which will need to be entered into your SIMS system for 2020-2021.

If you don’t feel like adding these in manually, there is a patch available that will update these for you automatically.

As usual, we’ll be applying this patch to all our schools where we apply your upgrade. This will be applied at the same time as your spring update.

For those of you that we don’t support, the patch number to ask for is Patch 25705.
