Let me guide you on how to stop employers National Insurance contribution from being calculated, westhillfarm.
The National Insurance contributions are a tax on earnings and self-employed profits paid by employees, employers and the self-employed. This help build your entitlement to certain benefits depending whether you are employed or self-employed, such as the State Pension and Maternity Allowance.
Normally, the system will only calculate contributions and deductions depending on how they are set up in the account. You can tick the Exempt from National Insurance option so NI won't be calculated. To do this, follow the steps below:
Furthermore, to make sure that you'll be able to monitor sales and expenses, you can run reports and customise them so you'll get the data you need. To give your more details, here's an article so you'll be guided: Customise Reports In QuickBooks Online.

Hi, thanks for the help but is this only available in Advanced Quickbooks? We have standard payroll only and 1 employee. It is the business employer contributions that we need to stop, not the employee side. Any more help available?
Hi westhillfarm, the NI contributions will still be calculated when employment allowance is enabled, and will be reduced by the EA on the p32 report to show the net NIC due for that period. If you do not believe that the calculations are showing correctly here, please get back to us below.
