National Insurance Class 2

As many taxpayers are aware, from the 2015/16 tax year the NI Class 2 contributions are taken alongside the self assessment.

However, in recent weeks as the deadline for filing looms it’s become ever more noticeable that the NI system isn’t fully integrating with Self Assessment as it should. For many people submitting tax returns on third party software, the return is then “corrected” by HMRC removing NI Class 2 and showing a lower payment due. In some cases taxpayers are paying the full amount due and having the perceived overpayment returned to them.

This generally should not be the case and with little exception anyone who has earned over £5,965 from self employment and is below state pension age should pay the £145.60 per year.

We advise anyone whose payments differ by the £145.60, or a multiple of £2.80 if you weren’t self employed for the entire year, to call HMRC’s NI helpline on 0300 200 3500 to remedy the situation.

National Minimum Wage (NMW) increases from April 17

The rate will then change every April starting April 2017.

The rates from 1 April 2017 will be:

£7.50 per hour – 25 yrs old and over
£7.05 per hour – 21-24 yrs old
£5.60 per hour – 18-20 yrs old
£4.05 per hour – 16-17 yrs old
£3.50 for apprentices under 19 or 19 or over who are in the first year of apprenticeship.
