The answer here is simple, if they are self-employed then you are not liable, and should not pay any tax, NI or pension contributions for them. They are not an employee and therefore you are not liable for any of this. I hope this gives you clarity on the matter. If you need further information on you obligations to a self employed person then you can have look at the Acas website as there is lots of information there. However, the best way to think about it is imagine hiring an electrician, they do a job for you and you pay them for it based one their invoice. You wouldn't pay their tax or pension etc. I hope this has helped.
