Reply To: Overpayments – Write off V’s Choose not to recover


In the latter case, you have decided that the overpayment is a recoverable one. The LA has the discretion of whether to recover or not.

If you decided not to recover, then you would write it off.

However, you would have no option but to write off an overpayment that is a non-recoverable one ie due to official error & appropriate person could not have realised they were being overpaid.
