HOW TO DO SHARED POLICY PERCENTAGES?

Could someone please clarify if this would be correct?  Below is an example about what I am talking about.

 

ie:  Parent Form

 

80p.JPG

 

Child's Form:

20p.JPG

 

Does each box from the Parent/Child need to equal 100%?  Or do certain boxes on both returns need to be 100%?

For each category the total % between the 2 returns must be 100% ... your screenshot shows a correct combination. Play with the combinations on both returns to see what gets the best results for everyone combined.  It is possible for one return to take 100% and the other 0%.

Yes. It is up to you how you want to prorate, as long as each adds up to 100%.

So for example could you do this:

 

Mine:  80   80   70

 

Child: 20  20  30

 

Would this be acceptable?
