New Enterprise Allowance

**Please note – the New Enterprise Allowance is no longer open for new applicants. For support please click here or call on 01744 742089**

NEA has supported many businesses to make self-employment dreams a reality but closed to new applicants at the end of 2021. However, ongoing support is still available for those clients who successfully completed business plans under the scheme.

This can include:
• a tax-free allowance of £1274 over your first six months of trading (subject to JCP/DWP criteria)
• Post start business support to help you through the ups and downs of your first twelve months of trading.
