Revenue and Customs Commissioners v Kearney [2010] EWCA Civ 288; [2010] WLR (D) 89

“To obtain an extension of time to pay Class 3 national insurance contributions a taxpayer had to show that his failure to make the payments on time was due to ignorance not caused by his own lack of care and diligence. All relevant circumstances were factors to be balanced together to assess or evaluate on a case-by-case basis whether due care and diligence had been exercised, and if not, whether that failure had been the cause of the contributor’s ignorance of his obligation to pay the contributions.”
