(4) The parental contribution which it is assumed forms part of the resources of a child (other than an aided pupil) must be deducted from the relevant income instead of the sum prescribed by sub-paragraph (3) if—

(6) In this paragraph, any reference to the applicant is a reference to the applicant at the time the relevant income is calculated and, if a remission question is redetermined under paragraph 11(2) includes the dead applicant.

General provisions relating to remission

10.—(1) The applicant is only entitled to remission of fees—

(a)for which they are liable in respect of the period during which the child holds an aided place; and

(2) If the Scottish Ministers are satisfied that an applicant has knowingly or recklessly provided information to the school which is materially false, they may direct that the applicant is not entitled to remission of fees in relation to one or more specified school years for any of the children of the applicant who are aided pupils.

(3) Before making such a direction, the Scottish Ministers must—

(a)give the applicant an opportunity to make representations; and

(b)have regard to those representations.

11.—(1) Subject to sub-paragraphs (2) to (4), remission questions must be determined by reference to relevant income in the preceding financial year.

(b)with the approval of the Scottish Ministers, the relevant income in the current financial year is likely to be less than the relevant income in the preceding financial year to such an extent that determining remission questions by reference to the preceding financial year would cause financial hardship.

(4) Remission questions may be determined provisionally with reference to relevant income for earlier financial years if it is not reasonably practicable for the applicant to provide the information about relevant income that is necessary for determining eligibility under paragraph 5 before the beginning of the school year.

(5) A provisional determination must not result in a greater remission of fees than a determination based on the estimate provided by the applicant under paragraph 5(1)(b).
