Nothing have really progressed with the job. The employer claims the DBS-check failed as I am more or less a ghost in the system. We are now trying a paper DBS-thing instead of doing it online. I really hope it go through. My work coach have mentioned if I fail any of these checks because of a mistake I will be sanctioned so I am a little bit nervous about that too.

Also I been trying to prepare a claim for Working Tax Credit so I can get some money between JSA sign-off date and payday. My employer doesn't want to give me their tax reference number, so I am not sure how I am going to make it money wise for a while after I signed off.

But yeah my plan is after I got employed to save some money and then start up a business on my own.

That sounds a bit odd. There is no 'pass' or fail' with a DBS. It either comes back as 'no convictions found' or it shows up ones that are registered against your name. Do you believe what the employer has said?

I hope the employer is not saying that as a scam in order to trick you into paying twice cyclops

What does your work coach mean by 'fail any of these checks because of a mistake'?   You cannot be sanctioned because of the outcome of the DBS, whatever outcome is obtained from it. Your work coach needs to be challenged about that.



Also I been trying to prepare a claim for Working Tax Credit so I can get some money between JSA sign-off date and payday. My employer doesn't want to give me their tax reference number, so I am not sure how I am going to make it money wise for a while after I signed off.

Why does the employer not want to give you the tax reference number?  That sounds dodgy to me  affraid What is the employer expecting you to do?





I am suspicious of both the employer and the work coach pale

The employer are paying for the DBS checks. I am not sure what to believe as I have never done a DBS before.

I got the impression the work coach meant if I made a mistake when writing down information on the DBS. I have no intention of trying to fail the DBS.

I also have no idea about the tax reference number. I decided not to be pushy about it.

Financial Help returning to work:

https://www.gov.uk/moving-from-benefits-to-work/support-when-you-start-working

https://www.gov.uk/budgeting-help-benefits/eligibility

Flexible Support Fund
If you are a customer of Jobcentre Plus, you may be able to get a payment from the Flexible Support Fund to cover any expenses you run up while taking up work or training. However, it's up to your local Jobcentre Plus to decide whether it will meet these costs.

Until you are an employee of the business you won't usually be given a Tax Reference Number so that you may claim Tax Credits in advance.

@Jara, am I right to understand that you want the tax reference after you start the job?

I presume you are intending to sign off from the day you start the job.

Thank you helping_hand, I will look into the this support fund for some help!

@Cake, I would like it before but I guess I am going have to wait until after I started. And yes, I will be signing off on the day I am starting work.
