Reply To: Tax credits


Backtracking slightly to Sunitas original question the guidance seems to suggest two different dates of COC. Section 12 says…. ‘when a change in the amount of tax credits occurs or a new award is made the relevant week you should use to decide when the change of circs should take effect is the Sunday of the week of payment’…in this case 080603. BUT Section 3 says ‘tax credits are income and are taken into account from the benefit week following the date they are put into payment to the claimant’…in this case 160803. So the guidance is telling us both the 8th and 16th of June?! or have I read it wrong? :21:
