Undisclosed Partners: Recovery of Overpayments between 17 May 2007 and 17 January 2010 - General

Where an examination or enquiry is settled 17 May 2007 and 17 January 2010 and it establishes there was an undisclosed partner we will consider remitting all or part of the overpayment to reflect the true loss to the Exchequer. However, this can only be considered in cases where the customer made a genuine error when they made their claim. It cannot be considered where a customer was late in telling us about a change in their circumstances.

  • Where the original claim was correct but the customer was late in telling us about a partner moving in with them - see CCM15610.
  • Where the original claim was incorrect - see CCM15630.
