Debt Management and Banking Manual

Debt and return pursuit: PAYE: end of year: overpayments: IDMS


When a new overpayment work item is received, IDMS will initially decide whether it is suitable for automated processes or for clerical attention on C/W PAYE OP work lists. IDMS will also check to see if all expected returns have been received.

Work items created from part returns will show

  • A ‘Part scheme processed’ signal (on Work Item Details - signals) if there is still outstanding one or more CIS return or P35
  • An information code of ‘P14s O/S’ if some or all P14s are missing.

Automated Processes

Linking rules - overpayment work items

IDMS will automatically link a new overpayment work item to an existing PAYE overpayment work item for the same employer retaining the same next action and date. IDMS will not link an overpayment to any type of debt or return work item.

Overpayment work items are not sent to DMTC.
