I don't know why my previous post was not allowed by the moderators. I was only trying to provide helpful pointers for other people making voluntary payments. Hopefully, they will allow this one.
Here is what I did:
1) I transferred my payment by bank transfer
2) then a few days later sent a covering letter, stating which years to allocate the payment to
It took just over 3 weeks for this to be reflected in my on-line pension forecast.
If you do a bank transfer to 'HMRC NIC Receipts' (20-20-48, 30944793) with the correct reference ('NINOICSURNAMEINITIAL'), does is automatically get allocated to your NI contributions? IE. does it happen immediately, or is it a manual process which takes a while?
I'm wondering how long to wait, after doing a bank transfer, to call the NI Helpline.
Hi HMRC Admin 19,
Thank you for responding.
My payment isn't time sensitive, so I'm happy to wait for the cheque to be processed.
Re. "We currently are not accepting cheque payments."
I wonder what will happen to the cheque I have sent? Will it be returned to me, or destroyed?
I might leave it a few more weeks and see if it gets cashed. If not, I suppose my only option would be to get the bank to stop the cheque.
Hi, any idea what the current backlog is?
We sent a form and a cheque, to pay class 3 nics for my wife, over 3 weeks ago. The cheque hasn't been cashed yet.
