Reply To: Payment of Income to Third Parties


I doubt very much if you could get a reg 9(1)(j) decision to stick. The situation is closely analogous to the arrangements with the Jesus Fellowship, where members of the Fellowship hand over all their income and are then housed, fed, clothed etc by the Fellowship. When we took the Fellowship cases to Court all those years ago, the judge was quite clear in his opinion that the ‘wholly maintained’ provision would not apply to the Fellowship who, in fact, were even more ‘maintained’ by the organisation than this lady is by the Dominicans.
