IPT audit assurance: IPT calculations: special accounting scheme
Insurers must formally apply to use the special accounting scheme. Where an insurer has
- adopted the special accounting scheme in practice and,
- has used it consistently and properly but,
- did not apply before starting to use it,
you should obtain a formal application from the insurer. The procedure is detailed in IPT10400.
This also describes how to deal with an insurer who applies to use the special accounting scheme from a future date; and requests by insurers to use the scheme with retrospective effect.
