Household Income

8.—(1) Household income for the purpose of these Regulations is calculated in accordance with this regulation and regulations 9 to 12.

(2) The household income is—

(a)in the case of an eligible student who is not an independent eligible student—

(i)the residual income of the eligible student, or

(ii)the residual income of the eligible student’s parent (subject to regulation 10(9)) aggregated with the residual income of the partner of the student’s parent provided that the Welsh Ministers have selected that parent under regulation 10(9),

whichever of the two incomes is the higher;

(b)in the case of an independent eligible student who has a partner, the residual income of the eligible student or the residual income of the eligible student’s partner, whichever of the two incomes is the higher; or

(c)in the case of an independent eligible student who does not have a partner, the residual income of the eligible student.

Calculation of eligible student’s residual income

9.—(1) Except where the student is undertaking a designated course comprising a period of part-time study, for the purpose of determining the residual income of an eligible student, there is deducted from his or her taxable income (unless already deducted in determining taxable income) the aggregate of any amounts falling within any of the following sub-paragraphs—

(a)any remuneration for work done during the relevant year, provided that such remuneration does not include any sums paid in respect of any period for which he or she has leave of absence or is relieved of his or her normal duties for the purpose of attending that course;

(b)the gross amount of any premium or other sum paid by the eligible student in relation to a pension (not being a pension payable under a policy of life insurance) in respect of which relief is given under section 273 of the Income and Corporation Taxes Act 1988(10),or under section 188 of the Finance Act 2004(11), or where the eligible student’s income is computed for the purposes of the income tax legislation of another Member State, the gross amount of any such premium or sum in respect of which relief would be given if that legislation made provision equivalent to the Income Tax Acts.

(2) Where the eligible student receives income in a currency other than sterling, the value of that income for the purpose of this paragraph is—

(a)if the student purchases sterling with the income, the amount of sterling the student so receives;

(b)otherwise, the value of the sterling which the income would purchase using the rate for the month in which it is received published by the Office for National Statistics(12).

Calculation of parent’s residual income

10.—(1) For the purposes of determining the taxable income of an eligible student’s parent, any deductions which fall to be made or exemptions which are permitted—

(a)by way of personal reliefs provided for in Chapter 1 of Part VII of the Income and Corporation Taxes Act 1988 or, where the income is computed for the purposes of the income tax legislation of another Member State, any comparable personal reliefs;

(b)pursuant to any enactment or rule of law under which payments which would otherwise under United Kingdom law form part of a person’s income are not treated as such; or

(c)under paragraph (2),

are not made or permitted.

(2) For the purposes of determining the residual income of an eligible student’s parent, there is to be deducted from the taxable income determined under paragraph (1) the aggregate of any amounts falling within any of the following sub-paragraphs—

(a)the gross amount of any premium or sum relating to a pension (not being a premium payable under a policy of life assurance) in respect of which relief is given under section 273 of the Income and Corporation Taxes Act 1988 or section 188 of the Finance Act 2004, or where the income is computed for the purposes of the income tax legislation of another Member State, the gross amount of any such premium in respect of which relief would be given if that legislation made provision equivalent to the Income Tax Acts;

(b)in any case where income is computed for the purposes of the Income Tax Acts by virtue of paragraph (6) any sums equivalent to the deduction mentioned in paragraph (2)(a), provided that any sums so deducted do not exceed the deductions which would be made if the whole of the eligible student’s parent’s income were in fact income for the purposes of the Income Tax Acts.

(3) Where the Welsh Ministers are satisfied that the income of the parent in the financial year beginning immediately before the relevant year (“the current financial year”) is, as a result of some event beyond his or her control, likely to be less than the sterling value of his or her income in the preceding financial year to such an extent that it would affect the student’s entitlement if entitlement were to be based on the current financial year they must, for the purpose of enabling the eligible student to attend the course without hardship, ascertain the household income for the current financial year.

(4) Where the Welsh Ministers are satisfied that the income of the parent in any financial year is, as a result of some event beyond his or her control, likely to be and to continue after that year to be less than the sterling value of his or her income in the previous financial year to such an extent that it would affect the student’s entitlement if entitlement were to be based on the current financial year they must, for the purpose of enabling the eligible student to attend the course without hardship, ascertain the household income for the academic year of the eligible student’s course in which that event occurred by taking as the residual income of the parent the average of his or her residual income for each of the financial years in which that academic year falls.

(5) Where the eligible student’s parent satisfies the Welsh Ministers that his or her income is wholly or mainly derived from the profits of a business or profession carried on by him or her, then any reference in this regulation to a preceding financial year means the earliest period of twelve months which ends after the start of the preceding financial year and in respect of which accounts are kept relating to that business or profession.

(6) Where an eligible student’s parent is in receipt of any income which does not form part of his or her income for the purposes of the Income Tax Acts or the income tax legislation of another Member State by reason only that—

(a)he or she is not resident, ordinarily resident or domiciled in the United Kingdom or another Member State;

(b)the income does not arise in the United Kingdom or another Member State; or

(c)the income arises from an office, service or employment, income from which is exempt from tax in pursuance of any legislation,

his or her taxable income for the purposes of these Regulations is computed as though the income under this paragraph were part of his or her income for the purposes of the Income Tax Acts or the income tax legislation of another Member State, as the case may be.

(7) Where the income of the eligible student’s parent is computed as for the purposes of the income tax legislation of another Member State, it is computed under the provisions of these Regulations in the currency of that Member State and the income of the eligible student’s parent for the purposes of these Regulations is the sterling value of that income determined in accordance with the rate for the month in which the last day of the financial year in question falls, as published by the Office for National Statistics.

(8) Where one of the eligible student’s parents dies either before or during the relevant year and that parent’s income has been or would be taken into account for the purpose of determining the household income, the household income is—

(a)where the parent dies before the relevant year, determined by reference to the income of the surviving parent; or

(b)where the parent dies during the relevant year, the aggregate of—

(i)the appropriate proportion of the household income determined by reference to the income of both parents, being the proportion in respect of that part of the relevant year during which both parents were alive; and

(ii)the appropriate proportion of the household income determined by reference to the income of the surviving parent, being the proportion in respect of that part of the relevant year remaining after the death of the other parent.

(9) Where the Welsh Ministers determine that the parents do not ordinarily live together throughout the relevant year, the household income is determined by reference to the income of whichever parent the Welsh Ministers consider the more appropriate under the circumstances.

(10) Where the Welsh Ministers determine that the parents do not ordinarily live together for part only of the relevant year, the household income is determined by reference to the aggregate of—

(a)the appropriate proportion of the household income determined in accordance with paragraph (9), being the proportion in respect of that part of the relevant year for which the parents do not so live together; and

(b)the appropriate proportion of the household income determined otherwise in respect of the remainder of the relevant year.

Calculation of eligible student’s partner’s residual income

11.—(1) Subject to paragraphs (2), (3) and (4) of this regulation and with the exception of paragraphs (8), (9) and (10) of regulation 10, an eligible student’s partner’s residual income is determined in accordance with regulation 10, references to the parent being construed as references to the eligible student’s partner.

(2) Where the Welsh Ministers determine that the eligible student and his or her partner do not ordinarily live together throughout the relevant year, the partner’s income is not taken into account in determining the household income.

(3) Where the Welsh Ministers determine that the eligible student and his or her partner do not ordinarily live together for part only of the relevant year, the partner’s residual income is determined by reference to his or her residual income under paragraph (1) divided by fifty-two and multiplied by the number of complete weeks in the relevant year for which the Welsh Ministers determine that the eligible student and his or her partner ordinarily live together.

(4) Where an eligible student has more than one partner in any one academic year, the provisions of this regulation apply in relation to each.

Calculation of parent’s partner’s residual income

12.  The residual income of an eligible student’s parent’s partner whose residual income is part of the household income by virtue of regulation 8(2)(a) is determined in accordance with regulation 11, references to the eligible student’s partner being construed as references to the eligible student’s parent’s partner and references to the eligible student being construed as references to the eligible student’s parent.

Independent eligible student

(a)he or she is aged 25 or over on the first day of the relevant year;

(b)he or she is married or is in a civil partnership before the beginning of the relevant year, whether or not the marriage or civil partnership is still subsisting;

(g)his or her parents are residing outside the European Community and the Welsh Ministers are satisfied that either—

(i)the assessment of the household income by reference to their residual income would place those parents in jeopardy; or

(ii)it would not be reasonably practicable for those parents as a result of a calculation in relation to regulation 8 to send any relevant funds to the United Kingdom;

(h)regulation 10(9) applies and the parent whom the Welsh Ministers considered the more appropriate for the purposes of that paragraph has died (irrespective of whether the parent in question had a partner);

(i)he or she was participating in arrangements for training for the unemployed under any scheme operated by, sponsored or funded by any state authority or agency, whether national, regional or local (“a relevant authority”);

(ii)he or she was in receipt of benefit payable by any relevant authority in respect of a person who is available for employment but who is unemployed;

Attendance

14.—(1) The Welsh Ministers may recalculate an applicant’s entitlement to an Assembly Learning Grant in accordance with paragraph (2) if the applicant’s attendance on the designated course in respect of which he or she has made an application for an Assembly Learning Grant is unsatisfactory.

(2) The formula for re-calculation is—

(3) In this regulation—

(2) Payments may be made in such manner as the Welsh Ministers consider appropriate and they may make it a condition of entitlement to payment that the eligible student must provide them with particulars of a bank or building society account in the United Kingdom into which payments may be made by electronic transfer.

17.  The Welsh Ministers may at any time request from an applicant or eligible student information which they consider is required to recover an Assembly Learning Grant.

18.  Where the Welsh Ministers have requested information under regulation 17, they may withhold any payment of Assembly Learning Grant until the person provides the information requested or provides a satisfactory explanation for not complying with the request.

Revocation

19.—(1) Subject to paragraph (2), the Further Education Regulations 2008 are revoked in relation to Wales on 1 September 2009.
