CLASS 3 NIC for six months after PAYE for 6 months

Postby landlord1234 » Thu Aug 19, 2021 4:33 pm

Suppose someone is employed at a salary of £600 pcm , i.e. above the lower earnings limit but below the primary threshold , and therefore paying no NIC.

If she is employed for the first six months of the tax year and leaves employment at the end of September, can she pay Class 3 NIC from October to the end of tax year and obtain a quaulifying year for her pension ?

or does she need to pay a full year's class 3 NIC to qualify ?
