Reply To: Overpayments – Circular A13 2006


I have now read this and as well as agreeng with Peter about the contradictions, I am not overly convinced about always sending an exact duplicate of the overpayement decision notice to the landlord, especially where the overpayment is not being recovered from them.

As for u/e falling under D&A rules, I cannot see how this would apply at all. The correct information by its very nature would more often then not be supplied after the month that it was supposed to be supplied, hence the overpayment. The legislation requires U/E to be applied to ensure the correct calculation of the overpayment FULL STOP.

I look forward to the re-write!
