From April 2014, HMRC will be able to collect outstanding Class 2 National Insurance Contributions (NICs) by adjusting the tax code of taxpayers
Those affected would have received earlier correspondence from HMRC requesting payment. The request would have stated that if payment was not made in full, HMRC could collect the debt through their PAYE code from April 2014 or pass it to a private debt collection agency for recovery on its behalf.
Taxpayers were also asked to contact HMRC if they thought their payment request was wrong.
Those who do not want their Class 2 NICs’ outstanding debt to be included in their tax code will need to pay the amount due in full.
