NICs set to get simpler for self-employed

Plans to simplify the way self-employed people pay national insurance contributions (NICs) have been published for consultation by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).

HMRC launched the consultation on 18 July to explore whether it would be simpler and more straightforward to collect these contributions alongside Class 4 NICs and Income Tax through the self assessment process.
