Hi everyone and Happy New Year!


Just wondering if someone with a Diploma in Payroll Management can help:

I'm looking at the Mock exam for 2016/17 and one of the directors - Christine - is paying NI as per standard employee. 

Apr salary is £917 and May salary is £705.45 + £211.55 untaken holiday.

EE Ni in Apr is £29.40 (happy about it) but in May she's got refunded NI £29.40.

She's leaving on 31st May. 

Can you please help me understand why is she entitled to a NI refund?


Thank you Smile

I can work it out manually but have no idea how to do it using 

HMRC online calculator do you have any idea.May be we can help each other.

Hey Lynn,

HMRC Calculator only gives you the total EEs and ERs contribution.

I remember I worked it out manually as well :-)

Good luck Cool
