Cashcheque offences: Investigation by Claimant Compliance Team: Penalties

 

If a penalty is appropriate, you should normally ask the claimant(s) to enter into a contract settlement for the amount of the penalty. Whether you include the pverpayment in the contract settlement depends on the time at which you are in a position to settle the case.

a. Where it is before 5th April you should use the template at CCM8750 or CCM8770 for your letter of offer and follow the guidance at CCM8500 for the wording to be used for the description of the penalty. Remember that you cannot ask the claimant(s) to pay back the amount of the overpayment during the year, so you should not include anything for the potential tax credit overpayment in the contract.
