Class 1 NICs: reporting NICs in RTI: direct collection schemes

Social Security (Contributions) Regulations 2001, paragraphs 30-31A

From April 2014, employees who are responsible for reporting and paying their own Class 1 NICs under the above legislation should do so under RTI.

This legislation applies where

  • the employer does not fulfil the conditions as to residence and presence in GB or Northern Ireland - see NIM33000 


  • the employer is exempt from the provisions of the Social Security Act by reason of an international treaty, for example workers employed in the UK by a foreign embassy.
