It is now October 2012. Of course you didn’t need me to remind you of that little tidbit of information, but BECAUSE it IS October, it is time to consider setting/revising your Housing Allowance for all ministers.
The minister’s housing allowance is not retroactive, and MUST be set in advance. That’s why it is good to think about it NOW.
Be sure to have the housing allowance set in writing and maintain a copy in your personal records.
