Reply To: Rate of Recovery – Overpayment Invoices


Don’t forget that the standard recovery rate on the in-payment cases is a maximum, not a minimum.

I would agree that it seems sensible that the least a person on an invoice should be paying is what they would be paying if they were still in payment, but bear in mind that that may not always be as much as the standard amount.

My council has a Financial Assessment Form for invoice cases, which (I think) is also used for clawback cases if they state difficulties paying the standard deduction.
