House of Lords written question – answered on 22nd December 2010.
To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Neville-Jones on 3 December (WA 506), what assessment they have made of the Migration Advisory Committee's recommendation that consideration should be given to awarding zero points for allowances under the points-based system for intra-company transfers in order that they make a full contribution to United Kingdom revenues.
The Government have not accepted the Migration Advisory Committee's recommendation that no points be awarded for the payment of allowances under the Points Based System. However, the guidance pertaining to Intra-Company Transfers dictates that when calculating points for earnings, accommodation allowance can account for no more than 40percent of total remuneration. Where a transferee is entering for over 12 months, this is restricted to 30 per cent of the total remuneration.
