Specialist Disability Employment Support – LITRG comments

Published on 28 February 2011

While much of the subject‐matter of this Department for Work and Pensions’ call for evidence is beyond the scope of LITRG’s activity, we comment on it from the viewpoint of our experience of tax issues relating to Access to Work.

A lack of appreciation of the tax and related obligations on employers, and lack of information or help with such matters for recipients of grants, can have a serious impact on the lives and health of those individuals. We make recommendations to improve information and training and reduce the likelihood of such consequences.

The call for evidence can be found on the DWP website.
