New regulations delay introduction of Universal Credit surpluses and self-employed losses rules

New regulations have been laid which delay the introduction of the surplus earnings and self-employed losses rules for Universal Credit.

Following the initial postponement to April 2017, it was announced in July 2016, that the introduction of these complex income rules would be further delayed until April 2018.

These regulations (SI.197/2017) provide for the delay and are available from legislation.gov.uk. Further information about the proposed rules can be found in our Universal Credit section
