    I have notified HMRC that I had started trading as self-employed on 5th March. I know I have to pay Class 2 National Insurance. I would like to pay it once a quarter. HMRC website says something about bills issued in April each year. Can I expect sucha a bill to reach me by post? What is the deadline to pay it?
    Also, do I have to register for NI Class 2 if I had already registered as self-employed using online form?

    Quarterly bill arrives by post by default. If you've registered as self employed then that's all you need to do.

    OK, so I should just wait patiently for a letter confirming my registration and a bill for NI Class 2. Thanks for your help.

    If you haven't heard anything by the end of April then I'd give them a call. You should be receiving an 09-10 tax return too if you started trading in March.

    As soon as I know my Unique Tax Ref. Number I will register for self-assessment online. Either way, the deadline for filing a tax return is 31 Jan 2011 in my case.
