RE: NI Class 3 voluntary contribution 18 digit reference numberFinally managed through the online advisors - the chat function referenced earlier, thank you. . They were really great and helpful. Didn’t realise the reference number was a one time track of payment to let them know how to allocate the funds. There should definitely be an option for this, but in the meantime that’s a really painful admin job done without hours of holding on. Hopefully the payment will get suitably allocated in 5-10 weeks as they say !
RE: NI Class 3 voluntary contribution 18 digit reference numberI share the general frustration on an already very complicated topic. Why can’t this just be on the Government Gateway ? I’ve held on to the phone for 2 hours a day for a week and given up. Separate question : does anyone know how much the contribution has to be if I am living abroad ? I was told by someone that it needs to be Class 2, self employed, would anyone know if that is correct ? Thanks
