The new 2017/2018 National Insurance table rates will need to be added to SIMS Personnel.
The following table displays the new rates:
|Band||Upper Monthly Earnings Limit||Lower Monthly Earnings Limit||Rate 1||Rate 2|
To update SIMS Personnel with the new NI rates, please follow the steps below:
- In SIMS, go to Tools | Staff | National Insurance Rates.
- Click on the ‘New’ button and type in the start date and enter 6 for the no. of bands
- Enter the table values as shown above
- Save your changes.
Please note: A ‘rounding’ difference may arise for some employees of approximately £1 – £2 per month.
 If the table is entered with a Start Date of 06/04/2017, the April 2017 NI projections in FMS will be slightly different to those in following months. To avoid this, enter the table with a Start Date of 01/04/2017.
