UK Payroll - Missing NIC category 'D'

Started by James Baker -   in UK Payroll


I am entering employee details into UK payroll and the NIC Catgeory 'D' is missing from the drop down menu. Does anyone know how I can get this option?

Many thanks
Hi James

As of the 2016/2017 tax year, the National category D (Employees in a contracted-out workplace pension scheme) is no longer needed.
If you are unsure of your employee's NI category, we would recommend contacting HMRC directly.
You can see the different NI categories on the HMRC website, here
