Reply To: Treatment of a ‘further payment’ – income or capital


I completely agree with your comment that we should only consider the HB/CTB effective date once we have calculated the necessary weekly income.

In this case the change of circumstances for tax credits purposes occurred on Friday 4/7/03 (I.E. the date of the first revised [b:b7e6eaddaa]weekly[/b:b7e6eaddaa] payment) and therefore I would use this date to calculate the remaining number of days in the award period (277).

For HB/CTB purposes the effective date of the new weekly TC income would then be Monday 7/7/03 – unless I’m missing something. I’m sure someone will let me know!
