The Treasury has released a statement that in the first year since its introduction, 29,000 employers have claimed tax relief under the incentive, corresponding to 270,000 new youth hires. However, Ranchhod and Finn found that in the first six months after its introduction, there was no evidence that the incentive had had any statistically significant and positive effect on youth employment probabilities.
