From the 2016 tax year onwards, the payment of Class 2 NIC has become part of Self Assessment and is now included on the Individual Tax Return.
  • Class 4 National Insurance Contributions (NIC) is a charge levied on the business profits of the self-employed, and on an individual's share of profits made within a partnership. However, it does not entitle the individual to any social security benefits.
  • Class 1 National Insurance Contributions (NIC) are made by employed individuals, and are usually deducted by the employer.

As a result, the Class 4 NIC calculation takes account of any Class 1 NIC paid and adjusts the Class 4 figure accordingly.
