Should self employed workers pay less NI than those on PAYE?

    Time was you bought a weekly self employed stamp down the Post Office, stuck it on a special card and handed the full card in to the DHSS office at the end of each financial year.
    You queued up with claimants and all sorts to hand it in and be issued with your next blank card.
    One year a chap jumped the queue in front of me, DSS chap in the box saw him off and says to him...
    "If that gentleman doesn't pay in then there will be no money for you to draw out."
    Anybody working for themself needs as many breaks as they can get.

    If the self employed stamp gets same benefits as employee then cost to SE should be same (though that ignores the Employers Cont).

    If less benefit then lower cost.
