Compliance Strategy: Overview
The compliance strategy for tax credits contributes to the departmental compliance strategy. It has two strands:
- encouraging customers to claim their full entitlement, and nothing more, in accordance with the law;
- identifying and putting right non-compliance.
This first strand includes publicity to try and ensure customers know they can claim tax credits as well as trying to make sure they claim the correct amount.
The second strand includes all forms of compliance check aimed at checking and correcting awards. It also covers correcting awards where the customer tells us they previously made an error in their claim. Our programme of compliance checks are underpinned by the Error and Fraud Analysis Programme.
