I got an email from a director on the 31st of March saying his IFA had adviced him to pay himself a salary of 7k. I had previously advised against this. The company was only set up in December so this would trigger an NI charge.
I initially made an error with the payroll and didn't enter the date the directorship started. (It was on easter Sunday I was trying to get the submission done surrounded by screaming kids)
I realised the error on Tuesday and submitted an updated fps and informed the client NI was due.
He is not very happy and doesn't want to pay it because the first payslip said otherwise.
Can he pay the NI and apply for a refund? His total earnings for the year is the £7000 so in the grand scheme of things he is under the threshold for the UEL. Or does this not work for directors?
