Hi all

 

Wonder if anyone can help

 

Our son was in education up to april 2013 then he signed up with ENTRUST (approved education support scheme in staffordshire) until he started college in september.

 

HMRC sent us one of those random check things to say we had to prove that he was/is in education or an "approved body such as connections or a local authority support service"

 

We returned a letter from entrust to confirm that he was and still is with them as an education support service and a letter from college to say that he is with them and has been since 2 sept.

 

We have today received a letter from HMRC to say that he no longer qualifies for the period 6th april to 1 sept. at first we thought that they were saying that Entrust were not an approved body but after ringing them they are saying that we did not inform them within the 3 month period that he had left education and gone into this education support (Entrust).

 

We thought that as he was still in the education system i.e. in education support rather than a school that he was still in the education system and therefore did not need to inform them.

 

I am going to send in an appeal stating the above but wonder if anyone else has suffered a similar thing and how their appeal went.

 

EDIT - If I had received something that I would not otherwise be entitled to, I could understand this. But as he was in an approved scheme we would have been entitled to it anyway

Education support is not the same as full time education so it may well be that the education support does not qualify him for the tax credits for that period and given what they say this seems likely to be the case.

 

Not that simple -- they say that the education support that he was in would (had i informed them) qualify - the reason that it is being withdrawn is because i did not tell them that he had moved from one part of the education system to another part within the required 3 months or at all.

 

For whatever reason (probably not thinking straight whilst suffering depression), I did not consider this to be a material change.

 

EDIT - I could understand it, if they were saying that this education support was not sufficient to qualify him.
