Reply To: Non-dependants moving out/ in.


Now that the SI is out it seems only fair to re-open this one and come up with an answer. Peverse it may be but I would argue that the deduction would be delayed for 26 weeks from when the non-dep moved back in. After all – the non dep would be someone who “took up residence”. I should point out that this is very much debateable and I would be keen for someone here to argue the reverse.

Can I also invite someone to take a look at the new para 11 of Reg 68 as inserted by SI2003/2275. Is this (accidentally?) saying that the 26 week rule can only be used once for each non-dependant? It certainly seems to imply that to me but it has been a long day!
