Pre-enforcement: coding out: class 2 NIC debts: automatic allocation of payments

Payments automatically allocate to the relevant NPS(NI) account without the need for clerical intervention.

New rules have been included in NPS(NI). NPS(NI) will look at the collection areas ‘Sent to IDMS’, ‘Subject to normal’ or ‘Coded out’ and will use these to correctly allocate in order of hierarchy as below.

Payments made to DMB following the issue of the IDMS 99, Final Opportunity Letter (FOL) or to the DCA will be allocated as follows.

  • Sent to IDMS
  • Subject to normal
  • Coded out debt

Payments made on payment requests will be allocated as follows.

  • Subject to normal
  • Sent to IDMS
  • Coded out debt

Any money left over will follow existing allocation business rules.
