Earnings-related daily allowance to increase
In the current year, many things have become more expensive. The good news is that the increase in the cost of living is taken into account in the amount of earnings-related daily allowance. Next year, therefore, earnings-related daily allowance and child increase will slightly increase.
Check your tax rate
Your earnings-related daily allowance counts as taxable income. We recommend that you check the percentage of tax that you will be charged before the end of the year to maximise what you have available to spend each month. It is always good to think ahead.
