can class 4 nic be reduced

can class 4 nic be reduced

        I have a client who is in retail as a sole trader and is in the same retail in a partnership at a different location .

The sole trader has made a profit and the partnership a loss.      The loss can be offset in the year to reduce profit but can it be offset in the year to reduce class 4 nic.?

     I am having difficulty in attempting to do this in the self assessment return

Class 4 nic

Where a taxpayer has more than one self-employment, profits or losses are aggregated to calculate Class 4 NIC, partnership profits / losses not excluding.  Your tax return filing software should do the calculation automatically.

which software do you use?

It is possible that you need to make a manual adjustment depending on which loss claim you have made
