    Help with nic...class 2 or 3?

    Hi Everyone

    Hoping someone could help.

    So I started my property business in 2006, after leaving work.

    I have built up a portfolio of 11 properties, last one added in 2013.

    I managed the properties myself and continued to seek adding to my protfolio throughout those years.

    I left to go abroad part way through 2013.

    I have paid no NICs in all this time.

    I now would like to pay nics for the years 2006 to 2013.

    I sent in my application to pay NIC whilst abroad form.

    I have received a rely saying I can pay as follows: the time I was abroad would be subject to class 2 but the time I was in the UK, should be class 3.

    I thought using the HMRC definition/rules I should have been paying class 2 during the time I was in the Uk.

    1)Can anyone advise if I should be paying class 2?

    2) My other concern is, if I am liable to class 2, should I have paid these in the years they fell due, and will I be penalised for this?

    Thanks for any advice.

    Unless you are 60+ already, I would forget about NIC's. I doubt that any pension will be worth having when we finally become entitled to one. Plus of course they keep extending the age when you qualify. 11 properties should keep the wolf from the door, and no doubt pensions will be means tested in due course.

      I believe you can only make up payments at class 2 rate in the 6 years prior to when you want to pay arrears, but things might have changed since I last looked into it. That may well be why they are asking for the more expensive class 3 rate.

        Assume you made a declaration to HMRC regarding income tax while you were abroad?

          Broadly speaking, if you leave the UK for full-time employment and remain out of the UK for more than a complete tax year, you don't have to declare any foreign income to HMRC, even if you repatriate the earnings.

            It wouldn't have been foreign income though

                In 2005 I bought a BTL property in London with an outstanding mortgage of ~£150,000 and a current market value of ~ £500,000. The apartment has never been lived in by me and my name alone is on the title deeds and mortgage.

                I would like to add my wife to the property, either 1) title...

                You're right, I remember that post. I agree that it's possible to do it but I feel if HMRC did take the time to view it then it could be classed as fraudulent, evading stamp duty and income tax.

                Beneficial ownership is a can of worms and HMRC aren't in any position to dispute what a married couple assert to be how they want to split the beneficial ownership, regardless of title.

                Someone posted on here a while back, and I made pretty much the same point (which was that the deed...

                I always believed that a DOT was used because normal ownership of tenant in common property was automatically registered as 50/50 split when the true ownership may have been different i.e wife has put more money in or such. Surely to transfer a percentage to your wife and then use a DOT to claim that...

                Where property is owned as tenancy in common, the default presumption is that each tenant owns the property in equal proportions.
                But that doesn't have to be the case, the ownership can be shared in specified proportions, so 1% and 99%, or 60%:40% are possible.

                That split would normally...

                I think the solicitor may arrange a sale contract of 25% share in property from H ( seller ) to W ( Buyer ) at Nil price . but the Tax Office will say the consideration is 25% of mortgage loan for calculation the sdlt to pay.

                After the property is registered under the names of H&W (...

                Is this possible (genuine question)? I understand the tenants in common bit but I thought you then needed a declaration of trust in order to change the proportions....

                Option 2 is not available because you have a mortgage loan ( in sole name ) secured by the mortgage lender taking a charge on the property title. This means any change to the property title requires consent by the mortgage lender.

                You can transfer by gifting a 25% share in the property...

                Tenants in common - which allows each person to own a defined share of a property.
                You can transfer 1% of a property to someone (at the value of 1% of the total property value at the time).

                Totally agree about the mortgage lender....

                This intrigues me, how do you transfer a small part of title? I know you can split beneficial ownership of jointly held property but how do you transfer a small part of title prior to changing beneficial ownership.

                I'm not sure your mortgage company will allow a transfer of title only,...
