從二零一三年四月八日開始，英國政府將為那些年齡十六歲至六十四歲人士需申領的傷殘病金轉換為一種新的福利 – 個人獨立生活津貼(“PIP”)。此新的福利需要所有申請者通過一項醫療評估。此醫療評估員是由一位獨立人士擔任，而不是申請者所熟悉的人，例如家庭醫生。此醫療評估將由十一類測驗來確定申請者如何處理日常生活行為與活動能力，之後決定申請者應得的津貼。
Personal Independence Payment
From 8 April 2013 the Government is to replace Disability Living Allowance for people aged 16 and 64 with a new benefit called Personal Independence Payment (“PIP”). The new benefit will require all applicants to go through a medical assessment which will be carried out by an independent assessor and not someone familiar to them, such as a GP. It will assess the applicant’s ability to manage their daily living activities and mobility through this assessment with 11 tests and the entitlement to this benefit will be decided through this assessment.
All working-age claimants who are currently receiving Disability Living Allowance and even if the claimant is having an indefinite award, will be reassessed and the reassessment could be taken place up to 2017. For further information about this Tax Credit Renewals, please contact the Centre.
英國稅務局會在四月至六月間寄出於已申請且正領取稅務津貼者有關續期之文件。若你正在領取稅務津貼(就業稅務津貼或兒童稅務津貼或兩者皆有)，你必須最遲於 2014 年 7月 31 日前，填妥及寄回其續期表格或回答稅務局提出的問題或/及需填寫其所要求的其他有關的表格。若在 7 月中還沒有收到此文件，請打稅務津貼熱線電話：0845 300 3900。

若你是在職員工，你的僱主必須遞交以下文件 – P45及P60 – 皆與你的薪金而需繳付之稅款有關。
3) P60：你的P60為一份在稅務年度內有關你的薪俸與扣除的稅款。你的僱主應在每一稅務年度 (四月六日至次年四月五日為一稅務年度)後遞交一份P60予你。你可能需要此P60填寫自己評估報稅單(若有此需要)，或需要求退稅，或申請稅務津貼。若你丟失了P60，你可以要求你的僱主提供一份複印本。
P45, P46 and P60
If you are an employee, your employer must give you certain documents – Forms P45 and P60 – about the tax you pay on your wages.
1) P45: You get a P45 from your employer when you stop working for them. A P45 has four parts – Part 1, Part 1A, Part 2 and Part 3. Your employer should send Part 1 to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) and give you the other three. When you start a new job or claim a Jobseeker’s Allowance, you give Part 2 and Part 3 to your new employer or to Jobcentre Plus and Part 1A for your own records. If you have lost P45 you will not be able to get a replacement.
2) P46: If you start your first job or taking on a second job without giving up your other one, your new employer may give you a Form P46 to complete or will ask you for the relevant information to allocate a tax code and work out the tax due on your first pay day. HMRC will process the P46 or the relevant information passed on from your new employer.
P60: Your P60 is the summary of your pay and the tax that has been deducted from your pay in the tax year. Your employer should provide you with a P60 to keep as a record at the end of every tax year which runs from 6 April to 5 April the next year. You might need this P60 to complete a Self Assessment Tax Return if this applies to you, to claim back any tax you have overpaid or to apply for tax credits. If you have lost it you can ask your employer for a duplicate copy.
For further information about these P45, P46 and P60, please contact the Chinese Community Centre.
