Section 12
Financial details for tax year 2018-19
for parents and partners
Who needs to complete this section?
Section 11 of this form tells you who needs to complete this section.
What details do I need to provide in this section?
You need to tell us some personal details and what your financial income was for tax year 2018-19. You
must tell us your 2018-19 income details as we cannot accept amounts from any other tax year. We
need your income amounts so we can work out what the student(s) you are supporting is entitled to.
About this section
Section 12 is split into six parts:
Part A - Tell us your name and address and some other personal information.
Part B - Tell us your National Insurance number.
Parts C and D - Answer every question.
Part E - Answer every question and tell us about any income deductions for tax year
2018-19 where appropriate.
Part F - Tell us about any children who are financially dependent on you.
How to complete this section
If you are a single parent of the student
Enter your information as Person 1, leave Person 2 blank.
If there are two parents in the student’s household
Complete this section with information for both Person 1 and Person 2.
If you are an independent student with a partner
Your partner needs to enter their information as Person 1, leave Person 2 blank
If you’re self assessed – read page 18 of the notes for more information.
If you’re not self assessed – you can use your P60 to complete this section.
What happens if my household income has dropped since tax year 2018-19?
If your household income will be at least 15% less than it was in tax year 2018-19 you can apply for
a Current Year Income (CYI) assessment.
This means we would use your expected income for tax year 2020-21 instead of your actual income
from tax year 2018-19 when calculating the student’s entitlement. However, there must be at least a
15% drop in the overall household income (not just your own income) between these two tax years
for us to do this and we will ask for evidence of your 2020-21 income at the end of that tax year.
Before completing this form, you should read the Privacy Notice on page 23 of the
accompanying notes.
The student may be eligible for a bursary or scholarship. In order for a university or college to
determine and pay any bursary or scholarship to which the student(s) you are supporting may be
entitled, we will share some of your personal and financial details with them. For more information
about this, read our Privacy Notice.
