What is the NI number used for?
The National Insurance number is used as a reference number in the Pay As You Earn system , and also by the self-employed. It is also used in applications for Individual Savings Accounts (ISAs), to check that an individual has opened only one ISA in a tax year. However, the NI number is not used universally as a tax identification number.
