These Regulations further amend the Social Security (Contributions) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1979 (“the principal Regulations”).
Regulation 2 inserts a new Regulation 34A into Schedule 1 to the principal Regulations. The new Regulation provides, in relation to the payment of earnings-related and Class 1A contributions and the calculation of interest on such contributions which are overdue or repaid, that where any such payment is made by cheque, it shall be treated as made on the day on which the cheque is received by the Collector of Taxes.
These Regulations make in relation to Northern Ireland only provision corresponding to provision contained in Regulations made by the Secretary of State for Social Security in relation to Great Britain and accordingly, by virtue of section 149(3) of, and paragraph 10 of Schedule 5 to, the Social Security Administration (Northern Ireland) Act 1992 (c. 8), are not subject to the requirement of section 149(2) of that Act for prior reference to the Social Security Advisory Committee.
