Reply To: Taking advantage of the scheme?


is this not making clever use of loopholes?

how can you prove it was done with the sole intention to claim hb, the intentions of the mother (non-dep) surely have no bearing on the daughter’s right to claim HB? If their association can be shown to be other than for claiming HB (which it clearly can) I doubt you could refuse such a claim.

If this could successfully be applied then we’d surely be turning down every change of address that involved a rent increase?

or am I missing something? 🙄
