    THIS PROBLEM CONCERNS PAYMENTS ON A WEEKLY CYCLE
    Example: person receives £xx.xx until 24/9 (so will receive £yy.yy from 1/10). Agreed?
    You would count from 6/4 to 30/9 (for £xx.xx) and from 1/10-5/4 (for £yy.yy). Agreed?

    If the person has had 2 Tax Credit Decision notices, then you could do it as descibed above, otherwise it would be:

    Yearly (part yearly) award less any payment of arrears, divided by number of days between (date of notifcation/start date of claim) and the end of award, multiplied by 7.

    I am referring specifically to a predictable change and how you calculate the number of days.
    In the case of a 4-weekly payment, it is clearly a case of counting up to and including the date on which the last of the old instalments is issued.
    However, in the case of the weekly payment, I believe that the number of days should be taken up to the day before the first of the new instalments is issued.
    Effectively, 4 weekly payment are all in arrears whereas weekly payments are in advance (liken it to HB payment cycles advance vis-a-vis arrears)
    I am basing my whole argument on what is contained in sections 1307 & 1308 of the Tax Credit Guide.
    Unfortunately, all the case studies scenarios use 4-weekly payments
