Can I reclaim employers National Insurance

Banned 7 replies
Found 7th Mar 2008
I gave up work on the 18th April 2007 but in the 07/08 tax year paid the following:-

YTD Taxable Pay:- £8,707.54
YTD tax :- £2,092.40
YTD Employee's National Insurance :- £567.77
YTD Employer's National Insurance :- £1,003.20
tax code is 522L

I worked in IT under an umbrella company and am aware I can reclaim any tax and employees NI overpayment but can I reclaim the employers NI bearing in mind I was the one that paid this from my taxable pay?

Any websites or pointers much appreciated.

Thanks.

You don't pay employers NI, the employer does. It's calculated on your pay, but not deducted directly from you. The employer pays it to HMRC, so you can't claim back employers NI, but you can claim back your tax, not sure you can claim back employees NI. The employers NI is shown to help the government see how much is put towards your pension (now that's another story)

Hope that's helpful

ok your tax code means that you get £5225 tax free allowance

so you should only be paying tax £3482.54

which would equate to tax of £766.15 (you pay at 22% tax rate)

Tax rebate of approx £1326.25

(this is unless you are recieveing benefits in kind from the employer- feel free to ask what these are if needs be)

as far as im aware overpaid national insurance cant be reclaimed

and you cant reclaim what the employer has paid

Thanks all bot question not really answered.

1. I am sub-contracted so I paid the 'employers NI' as I am the director.

2. You can claim back overpaid employees NI

I just need to know if I can claim back the EMPLOYERS NI. After all, I paid it.

as for the employers national insurance i found nothing concrete but am inclined to say you cant.

sorry i cant be of more help its just i've never seen a sub-contractor be paid in this way i only ever dealt with monthly returns for it from the employers perspective. As a sub-contractor i thought that you were the one responsible for paying ni
