Non employment income and Carers Allowence
Posted: Tue Sep 21, 2021 6:01 pm
Does anyone have any links/HMRC confirmation as to what the rules are in regards to non-employment income being received when someone is in receipt of applinked Carers allowance? I know employment/self-employment income is restricted, but what about rental income, income from investments (such as dividends) etc?

Carer's Allowance is currently paid at £67.60 a week (2021-22).
Carer’s Allowance is not based on your income and capital (or any partner's). However, there is a cap on how much you can earn from work and still be entitled to Carer’s Allowance.
Carer’s Allowance is taxable. However, you will only have to pay tax if you have other sources of taxable income such as occupational or personal pensions or part-time earnings, and if this combined income takes you over the threshold for paying tax. Carer’s Allowance on its own is below this threshold.
