Ceasing Self Employment, Class 2 NI

Ceasing Self Employment , Class 2 & Self Assessment Return

Didn't find your answer?

I submitted tax return for client entering date of cessation of trading. Tax return software correctly calculates part year Class 2 NI.

Irecieved a calculation showing 52 weeks Class 2NI. I phone HMRC and am told cessation date not shown for NI, not his area, he puts me through to a lady in NI.

Lady in NI takes an age, including asking how is the NI paid! I pint out Class 2 NI collected underself assessment for some years.

Total time 32 minutes. 


Has any one else had this problem?

If you only tell HMRC of the cessation through the SA return, and don't also notify NICO separately, then NICO will keep telling HMRC Class 2 is due

Thanks for replies. I was sure in the past that HMRC notified the NI people. I have never had to notify HMRC in 25 years.

I will look for the on line form for cessation of trade.
