    My employer has asked for my National insurance number but I will be getting paid minimum wage and won't be exceeding the £155 mark a week to pay NI

    So why does he still need it?

    To ensure that HMRC has a record of you earning this year you always have to give it. If you earn over £122 a week (you're considered as paying national insurance still for pension and benefits purposes even though you don't pay anything) so its in your interests to give them your national insurance number. Just make sure they have the correct tax code for you or you might lose some money from your 1st payslip.

    I agree with what the other poster said.
    You have to give it when starting all jobs im afraid.
    You might know that you wont earn enough to pay tax, but HMRC doesnt.

    It's what the others have said, even if you're not getting taxed, etc HMRC will still need to know. All employers ask for it regardless
