    Hi,

    Wondering if anyone can help? We have come accross a couple of claims recently where 2 payments of tax credits are issued within the same week identified through CIS. The guidance we have is that where a one off payment is in line with regular tax credit payments then the one off is treated as income and added to the claim. However where the one off is covering the same period as the regular these are classed as arears and ignored.

    I’m a little confused as how to treat the following claim in terms of the one off, whether it would be counted as income or should be arears:-

    DATE CTC WTC
    24.06.10 53.80
    03.08.10 52.85 88.34 ONE OFF
    05.08.10 52.29 88.34 REGULAR
    07.04.11 54.10 82.31
    14.04.11 53.93 78.58

    Can anyone shed any light on this one please?

    Kind regards

    I think so, thanks.

    My view is that I would count the one off payment as it appears it is due to a change in circs even though is only covering a couple of days.
