You may encounter a case with a new or existing employee where Social Security Contributions (SSC) are not being deducted. There can be several reasons why SSC is not being deducted.
What would you need to check?
- Confirm that the employee has the Deduct N.I. Payments from Salary setting enabled.
Note: Such a setting is found in the employee's profile, under the Payrun Adjustments tab
- Confirm that the employee does not have any No NI Mondays selected for the employee in a pay run.
Note: For more information on how NI can be adjusted in a pay run click here.
- Low income. The employee's Basic Weekly Wage is not enough to be liable to pay SSC.
- Employee's age is 65 years or more.
