Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations, which come into operation on 6th April 2006, amend the Education (Student Loans) (Repayment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2000 (“the Principal Regulations”).

Regulation 4 provides that the meanings given to Form P45 and Form P46 in the Income Tax (Pay as You Earn) Regulations 2003 (S.I. 2003/2682) (“the PAYE Regulations”) are included in the definitions.

Regulation 5 inserts a new regulation 28A into the principal Regulations. Those borrowers who are required to complete a Form P46 by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs must indicate in the form whether they have a student loan which they have to repay. Upon receipt of such a notification from a borrower, the employer is required to start deducting the appropriate student loan repayments from the employee’s earnings (regulation 5). Regulation 5 also amends regulation 35 of the principal Regulations so that it refers to a Form P45.

Regulation 7 amends regulation 50 of the principal Regulations so that where an employee has given notice of their loan to their employer in a Form P46, at the cessation of employment the employer will state in the Form P45 that the employee is a borrower. Regulation 50 now also refers to a Form P45.
