Charging penalties: recording and calculating penalties on the National Penalties Processing System (NPPS): creating a penalty case in NPPS: requesting approval and authorisation

Approval

The case is now ready for approval.

You must obtain approval from an authorising officer, see COG90680.

If the authorising officer does not agree with what is in NPPS they will ‘reject’ your submission and put any relevant comments in the ‘Rejection note’ box before returning the case to your workbasket. You will then need to make any required changes and resubmit for approval.

No further action can be taken on the case until the authorising officer has approved the case and returned the case to your workbasket.

After the authorising officer has approved the penalty and the case has been returned to your workbasket, you will be given the option to Issue Calculation Summary (NPPS1), see COG90840. The NPPS1 is not appropriate for most cases and is inhibited by default. Instead a PDAC generated NPPS100 Penalty explanation and NPPS100(S) Penalty explanation schedule should normally be used to explain the penalty position, see CH408000.

Select submit.

Authorisation

Before the penalty assessment can be issued, you need to resubmit the case to the authorising officer for authorisation in NPPS.

No further action can be taken on the case until the authorising officer returns the case to your workbasket.
