Lorimer Letter: your tool for reclaiming National Insurance
If you’re in one of the film & TV grades listed by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) as truly self-employed, you will always receive your income paid gross i.e. with no income tax or National Insurance Contributions deducted. If you’re not in an approved grade, you can prevent National Insurance being deducted using a Lorimer Letter.
You can apply for a Lorimer Letter from HMRC. Read our guide to find out more about what HMRC will be looking for in your application and how our team can help you.
