    Can anyone advise where I stand with the following:-My husband is likely to earn more this year than the estimate I gave in April by approx 1000-1500.

    You are assuming they no longer qualify for WTC - they do qualify for it and the elements will continue to be included in their award but they won't receive any payments of WTC due to the level of their income. They are not a CTC only case because they still qualify for WTC.

    I thought the nhs exemption was based on the actual tax-year income so say for months 1-11 you were on track to qualify and used the exemption then an extra unexpected earning in M12 took you over the threshold then in theory you had to pay back what you had used of the NHS exemption?
    Cool heads and compromise

    NHS certificate is valid for 7 months. It is valid until the expiry date.

    If entitlement is no longer due, due to change of circumstances, then once the certificate expires it will not be renewed.

    So if circumstances change and no longer entitled to a certificate in month 5 but certificate expires in month 8 then the certificate will remain valid until month 8 but will not be renewed.
