Why don't I have any National Insurance to pay?Last updated: 05 Apr 2021
You usually pay 2 types of National Insurance if you’re self-employed:
- Class 2 if your profits are £6,475 or more a year
- Class 4 if your profits are £9,501 or more a year
How much you pay
Rate for tax year 2020 to 2021
- Class 2: £3.05 a week
- Class 4: 9% on profits between £9,501 and £50,000 and 2% on profits over £50,000
The Drivers Tax App does not calculate Class 2 National Insurance because it's a voluntary contribution.
The app will show you don't have any National Insurance to pay when your recorded profits are less than £9,500.
