Extra time to make voluntary NI contributions
We recently wrote about checking whether it was worth making voluntary NI contributions before 5th April... but you will now have an extra four months (until the end of July) to make additional payments.
The government has extended the voluntary National Insurance deadline by four months to 31 July 2023 to give taxpayers more time to fill gaps in their National Insurance record and help increase the amount they receive in state pension. They will also be able to top up their accounts at the lower 2022-23 tax year rates.
This comes after members of the public voiced concern over the previous deadline of 5 April 2023.
