Hi. I retired early last year aged 52. If I return to work I know any income is liable to income tax including my pension. But as I don't pay national insurance on my pension does the starting point for paying national insurance include my pension therefore paying on all earned income or have some income above pension not liable for income tax. Thanks

Anyone who is working and is under the state retirement age is liable to pay National Insurance if they earn above the relevant thresholds, details of which can be found here:

How much you pay

National Insurance is calculated differently than tax, so you would be liable to pay National Insurance on all jobs separately.

The income from your pension would not be taken into consideration for Class 1 National Insurance. 

Thank you.

Hello Admin. I am a UK resident. If I earn foreign income (Hong Kong) during financial year of 2022/23, is my foreign income subject to UK National Insurance (NI) contribution? If yes what should I do next to report such? Besides, is such foreign income subject to income tax as well? If yes what should I do to report that? Thanks.

Yes, this income is liable for National Insurance. 

Tax on foreign income

Thank you.
