There is an annual maximum of contributions applying to any individual for a contribution year (tax year). This applies where the earner either:
has two employments (and is therefore paying Class 1 national insurance contributions (NIC) twice)
is both employed and self-employed (and is therefore paying Class 1, 2 and 4 NIC)
There is a proforma that must be followed to calculate whether a repayment is due. See below.

HMRC determines for which of the employments deferment will be granted. In those employment(s) where Class 1 deferment is granted, the employee continues to pay Class 1 contribu
