    I am currently reviewing our procedure for Self Employed Claimants and was wondering what procedures, if any, other authorities have for reviewing self employed income.

    Do you ask for proof of income each year for example when their new accounts are available or do you rely on the customer to provide them?

    Do you set a shorter review period for new businesses?

    Under what regulation do you justify asking for the further information once you have awarded HB/CTB?

    Any comments, even generally about self employed claims would be appreciated.


    We carry out High Risk Review on cases appearing on the monthly scan and also utilise admin codes (HBT85 in HBIS) to identify predictive changes including self-employed earners at periods of three, six and twelve months trading so that the initial income used can be reviewed.
