Reply To: childcare element paid with CTC


I have another one, I’m afraid. (Using SX3 codes). WTC is in payment ( not WTC30+), self -employed earnings are only 30.00, but hours worked are 45.
25.00 disregard has been applied to earnings, leaves 5.00.
6.90 should therefore come off WTC, but does not.
SX3 have replied that their understanding of the legislation is that the disregard can only be taken off WFTC30+ it cannot be taken off WTC.
Can anyone say if this is right or wrong?
Also, where we have info that claimant has stopped work, but proforma states WTC in payment, do you think they will actually get a giro and be able to cash it? Are you entering this income on your system or not?
