RHA welcomes U-turn on NI

The RHA has said that it is pleased with the government’s decision to scrap plans to increase National Insurance levels for the self-employed.

It said that the plans may have had a big impact on self-employed drivers.

“It’s not often that we see the Treasury have such an important change of heart,” said RHA chief executive, Richard Burnett. “Hauliers have to make every single penny count and the plans as announced last week would have had a serious impact on the many self-employed drivers, with their own trucks, on which this industry depends.”
