Charging Penalties: establishing penalty behaviour: evaluating evidence: introduction
You will have to present your manager and authorising officer with a sound, evidence-based argument to support your view of the penalty behaviour.
This should take into account
- the evidence you have obtained on how and why the inaccuracy, failure to notify or wrongdoing happened, see CH402301 to CH402305 for examples of questions to establish behaviour
- any other relevant information, see CH402702
- your response to any counter-arguments to your view of the penalty behaviour put forward by the person.
The following sections of this guidance are designed to help you evaluate the evidence and reach a conclusion on behaviour
|CH402703||Evidence of a mistake despite taking reasonable care|
|CH402704||Evidence of a careless inaccuracy|
|CH402705||Evidence of a deliberate inaccuracy, failure or wrongdoing|
|CH402706||Evidence of concealment|
|CH402707||Evidence of a non-deliberate failure or wrongdoing|
|CH402708||Evidence of a reasonable excuse for a non-deliberate failure or wrongdoing|
Each section provides links to more detailed explanations of types of behaviour in the technical guidance.
