This person concerned was awarded Back to Work Enterprise Allowance (BTWEA) from 6th August 2018. Following the six-month BTWEA review the case officer disallowed the claim stating that there is little evidence provided of activity and no evidence of incoming work. The case officer also noted that there is no business bank account, no evidence of invoicing or receipts in respect of income generated since its establishment in 2018.

Should the person concerned wish to discuss his case in greater detail, or should he have additional information to support his application, he should contact my office to arrange an appointment.

I trust that this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
