A person in receipt of a New Enterprise Allowance weekly allowance is no longer registered as unemployed. However, as a condition of receiving the allowance the recipient is required at the 6, 12 and 19 week stage to provide evidence of trading. If they are unable to do this the allowance may be withdrawn.
