Earners pay National Insurance contributions (NICs) on their earnings. Employers pay employer contributions for each employee and collect and forward their employees' contributions.
Paying NICs ensures the earner's entitlement to various benefits, including the state pension. Employers should understand their National Insurance obligations and the opportunities to reduce the cost.
