    Housing Benefit/Tax Credits and salary sacrifice

    Housing Benefit/Tax Credits and salary sacrifice 5th Jul 12 at 8:44 PM
    Hi all,

    I've been looking over the internet for the answer to my question but can't find anything so hoping somebody on MSE may be able to help.

    I've just entered into a salary sacrifice scheme at work and the deductions will start at the end of this month, my question is will my HB and TC be assessed based on my salary before or after the SS? The deduction will happen before tax & NI if that makes any difference.

    Thanks in advance

    MOVING THREADS FOR BETTER RESPONSES


    Hi, Martin’s asked me to post this in these circumstances: I’ve asked Board Guides to move threads if they’ll receive a better response elsewhere (please see this rule) so this post/thread has been moved to another board, where it should get more replies. If you have any questions about this policy please email forumteam@moneysavingexpert.com.

    My gut feeling is 'before' otherwise the tax payer would be funding your private pension by giving you more HB if you see what I mean.

    Sorry, only just seen this. The reason I sent the PM was because I was (and unfortunately still am) going through an appeal which I have been told by the officer dealing with it that I will win. There are personal financial information and other stuff concerning the case that I didn't feel comfortable sharing to the masses at least until the appeal has been decided. Once I have a formal decision, I'll be more than happy to provide case law etc on the open boards.

    My apologies then Alleycat, there are often people trying to drum up business after seeing some posts, please be careful posting any personal information in a pm anyway.

    best regards
