New Enterprise Allowance Scheme
Client wishes to claim the New Enterprise Allowance Scheme (“NEAS”), however has not paid any NI Conts for approx. 5 years and partner’s income is approx. £30k and savings in excess of £16k etc. Can client still apply for the NEAS whilst claiming ESA or U/C (on the grounds of sickness) knowing that he/she will not receive any payment as such but only NI Conts themselves, or must client actually be in the position of receiving the out of work monetary payment itself.
