Current year income, finalisation assessments
As the tax year has ended, we’re now carrying out the current year income finalisation for academic year 2022 to 2023. This page is for parents and partners who are unable to provide the evidence we've asked for. Or haven’t received our email request.
If you’ve not got your P60 yet or can’t find it
We understand that you might not have your financial evidence for tax year 2022-23 yet or you might find it hard to give us the evidence we’ve asked for.
Don’t worry if you can’t give us your P60, we can accept a copy of your March 2023 payslip as long as it shows the total year to date figures.
If you haven’t got an email about finalising the current year income assessment and/or are unsure of how to do this
We’ve emailed parents and partners of students to ask them to confirm their financial information.
If you did not get this email, follow the steps below to finalise the assessment.
- Download and save the Financial Information Confirmation form (PDF, 230KB). Complete the form and then upload it to your online account by going to the application you supported for the academic year 2022/23 and selecting ‘upload supporting evidence’
- Upload your tax year 2022-23 financial evidence. The form explains what documents you can provide.
- You don’t need to sign the form if you’re uploading it to your online account. However, if you choose to upload the form through someone else’s account, the form should be fully signed and dated in ink or we cannot accept it.
If you cannot upload your form, you should return it with clear photocopies of your evidence to:
Student Finance Wales
PO Box 211
It can take 4 to 6 weeks to process, but we’ll contact the student by email or post as soon as we’ve updated their application. They can also check their account for updates.
If you’re self-assessed or self-employed and cannot provide evidence yet
If you haven’t submitted your tax return for tax year 2022-23 and you can’t do it until later in the year, you can delay the finalisation.
You’ll still need to complete the form we’ve sent you and confirm your up-to-date estimates. Tick the box in section 5 to let us know that you haven’t submitted your tax return yet. We’ll contact you in February 2024 to remind you to send your evidence.
If you have no income to declare
You still need to return the Financial Information Confirmation form and include a note to let us know you have no income to declare.
Once we get your form, we may contact you again for further information on how you supported yourself.
If a sponsor dies after a current year income assessment has been awarded
If a sponsor passes away after the student is awarded a current year income assessment, we’ll need to see the deceased sponsor’s death certificate and financial evidence to finalise the application.
Send a cover letter explaining that the sponsor is deceased, a copy of the death certificate and any financial evidence you have for tax year 2022-23. Once we have this we’ll pro-rate their income from the beginning of the academic year to when they passed away.
If the student is returning to their studies in academic year 2023 to 2024 and your income has dropped by 15% or more
You can complete another Current Year Income assessment form for academic year 2023 to 2024. The process will be the same as before. You’ll need to tell us what your estimated income will be for the tax year 2023-24.
You can download and complete the Current Year Income assessment form then upload it to your online account.
