  • The 2.3 percentage point increase in employer contributions into the Teachers' Pension Scheme from September 2015
  • Auto-enrolment pension obligations
  • Increase in the statutory minimum wage for those aged 25 and over (the National Living Wage) from April 2016
  • Many employers opting into the voluntary Living Wage
  • Increases in employer NI contributions due to the introduction of the single tier state pension and the abolition of contracting out from April 2016
