Purpose of the list

There are two versions of the Payments After Cessation List.

  • Function CPYT is the update version.
  • Function CPYE is the view only version.

The purpose of the work list is to show you cases where a payment is received for an AP ending after the recorded date of cessation or striking off.

How often should the list be reviewed?

Local management should ensure that the work list is reviewed on a monthly basis.

Who does what?

An Officer normally reviews and controls the list, identifying new cases and existing cases where the B/F date has expired.

When are new entries added?

COTAX adds new entries to this list daily.

Reasons for entry

COTAX enters a case on the Payments After Cessation List when a payment is received for an AP after the recorded date of cessation or striking off, which results in the AP being overpaid. If there is an existing entry for the AP on LOPU ((Overpayments Review List) Recovery), LOPD ((Overpayments List) District) or ORUR (Overpayments Requiring Urgent Review), there is no entry on CPYT.
