Working families' tax credit

11.—(1) Subject to sub-paragraphs (2) and (3), payments by way of working families' tax credits shall be treated as the income of the non-resident parent where he has qualified for them by his engagement in, and normal engagement in, remunerative work at the rate payable at the effective date.

(2) Where working families' tax credit is payable and the amount which is payable has been calculated by reference to the weekly earnings of the non-resident parent and another person—

(a)where during the period which is used by the Inland Revenue to calculate his income the normal weekly earnings (as determined in accordance with Chapter II of Part IV of the Family Credit (General) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1987(1)) of that parent exceed those of the other person, the amount payable by way of working families' tax credit shall be treated as the income of that parent;

(b)where during that period the normal weekly earnings of that parent equal those of the other person, half of the amount payable by way of working families' tax credit shall be treated as the income of that parent; and

(c)where during that period the normal weekly earnings of that parent are less than those of that other person, the amount payable by way of working families' tax credit, shall not be treated as the income of that parent.

(3) Where—

(a)working families' tax credit is in payment; and

(b)not later than the effective date the person, or, if more than one, each of the persons by reference to whose engagement, and normal engagement, in remunerative work that payment has been calculated is no longer the partner of the person to whom that payment is made,

the payment in question shall only be treated as the income of the non-resident parent in question where he is in receipt of it.
