Clients just received a tax repayment, but asked what happens with the NIC that they have paid on these earnings?
They are a basic rate taxpayer so have received 20% back, but no NIC.The reason he was overtaxed was due to a payroll error where he works. I told him the NIC contribution would just sit on his NIC record and would not be repaid, but this seems unfair for a mistake made by his employer?
I told him I would double check. Could someone help fill in my kowledge gap please?
