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 2013, amend the Social Security (Income and Cash Assets Exemptions) Regulations 2011 (the principal regulations).

Regulation 4 replaces regulation 21(2) of the principal regulations. The only substantive change is to subclause (2)(a), which identifies the per hour payments used in successive years to calculate the maximum income exemption for home-based education and care of a child. For the year 1 April 2013 to 31 March 2014, the per hour payment is $3.35. The increase from the per hour payment applicable in the previous years reflects a 0.61% increase in the New Zealand Consumers Price Index from the December 2011 quarter to the December 2012 quarter (calculated using the CPI All Groups excluding cigarettes and other tobacco products).
