National Insurance classes for self-employed individuals
You usually pay 2 types of National Insurance if you're self-employed:
- Class 2 if your profits are £6,025 or more a year
- Class 4 if your profits are £8,164 or more a year
You work out your profits by deducting your expenses from your self-employed income.
