Last week the Scottish Government announced it would be introducing a new benefit for low income families in Scotland, the Scottish Child Payment. In this blog our Director, Dr Phil Agulnik, gives his initial thoughts on the payment.
In an article for the Institute of Revenues Rating and Valuation's Benefits Advisory Service magazine, our Director Phil Agulnik says "Banded CTR schemes can help reduce administration costs but consider the alternatives too."
Our Director, Dr Phil Agulnik, looks at the case for transitional protection, the system that helps protect losers under Universal Credit. Because households can't lose if DWP move them onto UC, does that mean parliament should pass the managed migration regulations rather than delay the roll out?
With speculation about potential changes to Universal Credit being announced in the Budget next week our Director, Dr Phil Agulnik, takes a closer look at the current main winners and losers of this new benefit.
