Explanatory note

This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These regulations, which come into force on 1 April 2011, amend the Social Security (Income Exemption: Home-based Care) Regulations 2004 by raising the amount that is declared not to be the income of a caregiver who receives payment for providing home-based education and care, arranged by a service provider, in accordance with the code of practice set out in the Schedule of the Education (Home-Based Care) Order 1992.

The amount is raised to reflect a 3.75% increase in the New Zealand Consumers Price Index from the December 2009 quarter to the December 2010 quarter (calculated using the CPI All Groups for the first quarter and the CPI All Groups excluding cigarettes and other tobacco products for the other quarters).

Issued under the authority of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989.

Date of notification in Gazette: 24 February 2011.

These regulations are administered by the Ministry of Social Development.
