Pre-enforcement: coding out: means-tested benefits

Because coding out means that customers will pay more tax which reduces the amount of take home pay, any customers receiving certain means-tested benefits may find that these are affected.

Such customers are advised to contact their benefit providers for advice and the IDMS99 letter and Class 2 payment request include a paragraph informing them of this.
