(3) If for any period a person holds more than one employment (whether under a contract of service or for services) with an employing authority in respect of which the person is an active member of the Scheme, this regulation and regulation 32 apply in respect of each of those employments as if it were the only employment held.

(4) The employer’s standard rate is 13.3%.

(5) In any particular case the Department may direct that, for the purposes of this Chapter, “employing authority” includes one or more of—

that employing authority shall pay employer’s standard rate contributions to the host Board not later than the 7th day of the month following the month in which the earnings were paid.

This is subject to paragraph (7).

(7) If a non-GP provider is a shareholder or partner in more than one employing authority referred to in paragraph (6), each employing authority must pay employer’s standard rate contributions on any pensionable earnings it pays to the non-GP provider or, as the case may be, on the non-GP provider’s share of the partnership profits, to the host Board not later than the 7th day of the month following the month in which the earnings were paid.

(8) If paragraph (13) of regulation 30 applies (but paragraph (6) of this regulation does not) and the employing authority referred to in regulation 30(13)—
