Question for Treasury

No such assessment has been carried out as the Government has no current plans to subject members of a Limited Liability Partnerships (LLPs) to employer National Insurance contributions (NICs).

Individual members of LLPs are taxed in the same way as partners in a general partnership, paying Class 4 and Class 2 NICs like other partners and self-employed individuals. If members fall within the salaried member rules introduced by the Finance Act 2014, they are taxed as employees, paying Class 1 NICs.
