Changes to NIC Class 2 Payments

Newsletter issue - April 2011.

As a self-employed person you probably pay your class 2 NIC, (formerly known as 'NI stamp') by monthly direct debit, or when the quarterly bill arrives from the Tax Office.

From April 2011 the Tax Office is changing the way it collects class 2 NICs. The payment will be due in two equal instalments on 31 July and 31 January. The Tax Office will send out separate bills for the class 2 NICs in April and October that demand payment for the amounts due in the following July and January.

If you already have a monthly direct debit set up to pay your class 2 NICs, those direct debits will be suspended from April 2011 and will start again in August 2011. You can opt to pay your class 2 NIC bill when the payments become due in July and January, by telephone banking, Bank Giro, at the Post Office, by direct debit or by cheque.
