Slow to pay NIS

Slow to pay NIS

Social Share

THERE HAS BEEN lukewarm response by businesses to the publication of their names on a list of defaulters to the National Insurance Scheme (NIS).
NIS director Ian Carrington told the DAILY?NATION yesterday that some employers had come in this week to settle their debt but not as many as the NIS would have expected.
He did not give details as  to how many of the more than  900 defaulters actually paid up, but confirmed that some people were also served with court documents this week.
However, he reminded that under the NIS?Act, directors and managers of companies were liable for any debt to the scheme, which could go after their personal property.
