Self Employed - Class 2 National Insurance

Posted 3/11/2017

The Government announced that changes are being delayed...

The Government has announced that it will be delaying the abolition of National Insurance Contributions for low-paid self-employed workers for a year.

The delay relates to the removal of Class 2 National Insurance Contributions (NICs) and has been introduced to allow consultation on the impact of its abolition on the self-employed on low incomes.

When Class 2 NICs do end, those with profits below the small profits threshold (currently £6,025- £8,164) are expected to be about £130 a year worse off and will have to pay Class 3 contributions – five times as much as Class 2 contributions – if they want to build up an entitlement to contributory benefits such as the state retirement pension.

The abolition of Class 2 NICs will be a significant change to how people contribute to qualify for certain benefits and the State Pension.

A Treasury spokesman explained that the delay was “simply about giving us more time to consult with those who are concerned about the changes and getting the detail right. It is therefore right to take the time to ensure that there are no unintended consequences for the lowest paid.”
