    MA for self employed

    I've applied for MA due to being self employed for (hopefully) enough time during my qualifying period. I havent heard back from them yet with a decision, but have now reached the date where i said i would stop working . Do I need to contact HMRC and de-register as self employed now? Or do nothing?
    I knew you even before you were conceived. (Jeremiah 1:4-5) You were not a mistake,for all your days are written in my book.( Psalm 139:15-16)
    I determined the exact time of your birth and where you would live.(Acts 17:26) You are fearfully and wonderfully made. (Psalm 139:14)
    For you were made in my image. (Genesis 1:27) I knit you together in your mother's womb (Psalms 139:13)
    And brought you forth on the day you were born. (Psalm 71:6) And I rejoice over you with singing. (Zephaniah 3:17)

    Are your class 2 NICs up to date (the way they have changed it to paying with your annual tax return means many self employed mums are being told they aren't eligible because they're NICs aren't paid up)?

    You need to keep your self employed registration as I assume you've worked up to the point so will need to do your self assessment for 2016-17 after next April and I assume resume working at some point?

    If you haven't heard back of chase them though as I've heard of quite a few being told they aren't eligible due to this NICs issue.

    PS how fast has your pregnancy gone?!

    i did chase it up and they said i should hear soon, and that I would be given a chance to pay the NICs for this year to date if they fell short (i paid some for last tax year but none for this year because of how the system works). I asked the same question about deregistering on a tax forum and they said i had to notify HMRC if i was no longer working . If you do any SE work while on MA you lose it, so i thought i would have to deregister?

    If you don't think you are going to resume afterwards you would follow the process for ending self employment and winding down your business. You'll need to do a tax return on this tax year to date I believe- I think you'll get a shorter deadline for submission than January 2018.

    You have to notify them of any changes but only deregister if you are closing down your business. You can't work but I believe you can still do 10 KIT days whilst in receipt of MA.

    thanks, I managed to get through to HMRC in the end and they advised to stay registered because it can complicate things if you leave the system too soon and plans can change. eg if you fall pregnant again and need to make another claim . I also got the response to my MA claim through at last! Ive been given the basic rate inititally but have been referred to the NICs dept to make up this years contributions so all is looking positive at the moment

    having a nightmare with this as the DWP keep sending the request through to HMRC so i can make my payments, but HMRC are not getting the request.....3 times theyve sent it and all they can say is nothing has come through so they cant help me, then DWP say its sent electronically so cant go missing, send it again and HMRC still dont get it!

    going in circles on the phone to both of them .........meanwhile i'm maxed out on my overdraft ....

    I daresay DWP and HMRC are like dumb and dumber when it comes to administration. Hope you get it sorted soon. I think it was HMRC said to me last year that they couldn't accept an email authorisation from me so could I fax them instead. Hahaha (I didn't laugh at the time!)
