    no NI taken first payslip 13th Sep 17 at 6:22 PM
    Hi


    First payslip received for my new job, no tax taken which I was expecting but no NI taken either?


    NI code is A.


    gross wage is more than £200 for a week.


    What could be the reason? Should I contact any one like HMRC?


    Thanks

    your pay entitlement may be per week worked but NI is applied at the frequency of when you are paid. You are paid monthly so the monthly rate applies ((£157 x 52)/12)= £680.33

    your first payslip was for "£400?" (£200 per week x 2 weeks?) paid on a monthly payroll. The NI threshold for a month is £680.33. QED, no NI due (and nor will it be in future months unless your gross pay in each month is more than that)

    What does it state for pay period ? Even though you have only got 2 weeks pay it is probably for the month period.
