Reply To: Revised Tax Credit award


I did have some procedure notes for assessors based upon Amendment 9 which appeared to make life easy by allowing us to use the IR notification letter date. I had advised the assessors to use this method for revised awards as well as new awards (in the absence of any concrete advice from DWP) which is what the DWP have told Mark (above).

However, Amendment 10 is saying we should not be using the date of the IR notification letter and therefore appears to re-introduce the concept of structural overpayments (Amd 9 would have done away with these). What I cannot understand is why this is the way to do it for revised awards but for new awards that have had an amount already paid the method is different.

Any thoughts? :21:
