Re: Buy back missed year on UK National Insurance, Class 2 or Class 3?

What about Section 4 of the form: Self-employment/employment abroad, does this need to be filled?

It concerns employment history after the date when we left the UK.
I see the first 52 weeks can relevant, so filling the first employer while abroad makes sense but do need a full employment history after so many years, is it necessary?

Just the position immediately before leaving the UK & when you arrived in CH

Thanks for this

The form is not phrasing this well , they ask "Are you or will you be working abroad for an employer?", so filling there the first employer could be interpreted as if it's the current employer as well

Re: Buy back missed year on UK National Insurance, Class 2 or Class 3?

Also, I'm wondering what is the "right" payment choice, my UK bank accounts are nearly empty and don't want to transfer money there unless I have an approval for class2 contributions after leaving and/or for filling gap years.
My worry is if they approve and the direct debit kicks in without me getting a chance to timely do a transfer. Is "Annual Payment" the best payment option then ?

Read the whole document, not just the form.
Caveat: this is from a form I downloaded and used in 2018

This is a very slow moving affair, so don't worry too much.
Usually they send you a letter accepting the application, along with a amount to pay (back pay) and the detail on how to pay it going forward ( eg 'on 30th of August we will take X from your bank).
For the ongoing payments ( I can't remember exactly how it transpired) however it really isn't an issue, you get plenty of time.
Don't over think it, the process will work.
