    Hi All,

    A bit of advice required please…..

    For the purposes of the child care disregard certain people are treated as in remunerative work even when they are not. A person on maternity, paternity or adoption leave is treated as in remunerative work if they:-
    • Were in remunerative work in the week before the leave started,
    • Are incurring relevant child care charges; and
    • Are eligible to statutory maternity, paternity or adoption pay, maternity allowance or income support because of paternity leave

    However this person is not entitled to the additional earnings disregard because they do not meet the criteria.

    We are a Northgate site so in order for the child care disregard to still apply we are having to insert the customer on 16hrs whether on SSP or not- so that the computer thinks the person is in remunerative work.

    The only problem with this is that it is then awarding the additional earnings disregard when the person is not entitled to it.

    Can anyone shed any light?

    Thanks
    Stuart

    They did provide some income codes specifically for this SSP(CCC) which awarded the child care disregard but you could put in as 1 hour so not treated as in remunerative work. Think there’s one for SMP(CCC) too.

    Yeah i have got those.

    I just tried one- i think it was the SMP(CCC) one- and inserted 1 hour- the only problem was that it awarded the additional earnings disregard- and not the standard disregard.

    Thanks

    Clutching at straws here but it didn’t have the WTC16+ code in too did it?
