    Question Self-employed : Small Earnings Certificate for previous years

    Hi all,

    I set up a limited company in 2009 and my profit and loss account was alltime less than 5000 and i did not also paid for Class 2 National Insurance contributionicon.

    However, I have forgotten to apply to the Small Earnings Exception certificate (i was relying on my account who was a bit negligent) and presently I am urgently needing this certificate to prove that I am really self employed.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Moved to HMRC Forum. If anyone thinks this would do better in the Employment Forum please feel free to suggest that, but it does look like an HMRC issue to me at first glance.

    Thanks.

    It seems like as in fact I am the director of limited company (but alone in the company) and also class nic is not relevant...but i am not sure.

    Hello there.

    I'm not an expert, but my understanding is as you say, that a director of a company is not self-employed.

    I would try a search of the HMRC website to see if there are answers to your questions. They also have a telephone helpline on weekdays that might be worth a call.

    Hello,

    I did and found the following link http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/ni/intro/benefits.htm :

    Insurance contributions

    Some state benefits aren't linked to your National Insurance contributions. These are known as 'non-contributory benefits'. You can be eligible for these benefits whether or not you've paid (or been credited with) any National Insurance contributions.
    Some of the state benefits you can get even if you haven't paid any National Insurance contributions include:
    • Child Benefit
    • Guardian's Allowance
    • Jobseeker's Allowance - the 'income-based' element
    • Employment and Support Allowance - the 'income-related' element
    • Working Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit
    • Attendance Allowance or Disability Living Allowance
    • Carer's Allowance
    • Severe Disablement Allowance
    • Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit
    • War Widow's or Widower's Pension
    • Pension Credit

    So does that answer your question? You started with one about a small earnings certificate.
