Understanding Working for Families Tax Credits (WFFTC)


From 1 April 2011 a new definition of Family Scheme Income was legislated for determining a person’s entitlement to:
  • Working for Families Tax Credit (WFFTC)
  • Student Loans
  • the Community Services Card
  • Liability for Child Support payments
  • Parental Income for Student Allowances
In this practical course, we will look at this definition. We will review the legislative definition and how it is interpreted by the various organisations that administer it. This will include a review of the policy and guidelines from Inland Revenue. We will also review the rules and qualifications criteria for each type of WFFTC.

We will use examples and case studies to identify and clarify some of the difficulties that have arisen over recent years, especially for individuals operating through business structures such as companies and trusts.
You will walk away from this seminar with:
  • an increased understanding of income and the benefits available under WFFTC
  • more confidence in applying the legislation

Who Should Attend?

Anyone who has clients who can apply for the tax credit or received Student Allowances. This is aimed at all levels of accountants from juniors to seniors.
