Foster Carers and WTC
Hi I am tring to help a client claim WTC. Client is an LA Foster Carer ( grandparent ) , she recives fostering allowances for the children. She recives no payment for herself for the Fostering. I am looking for some guidance and aor clarification. Can she claim WTC as a self employed foster carer even though she doesn’t receive any payment for herself ? I have looked on HRMC guidance and its not clear.
Can do if working enough hours - do you have access to CPAG WB and TC H/bk 17/18? - if so see page 204
Shouldn’t be a problem at all unless children are with her less than 30 hours per week - https://www.gov.uk/hmrc-internal-manuals/tax-credits-manual/tcm0124100
Just and update client got an award of WTC as a self employed foster carer.[ Edited: 19 Apr 2018 at 01:47 pm by Lesley Brock ]
