Reason for over-repayment

3. In function VIEW STATEMENT
   
  * Select the relevant statement to view the original repayment and the over-repaid amount
  * View the return and SA Notes in order to establish whether the over-repayment has arisen because of taxpayer or HMRC error
4. When reason for over-repayment has been established, in function VIEW STATEMENT select the line of the original repayment and select [Create Over-Repayment Charge] button
5. The CREATE OVER-REPAYMENT CHARGE screen will display the details of the taxpayer’s original repayment and over-repaid amount. You will be asked ‘Is all or part of the over-repayment to be replaced with a new charge’ Y or N ?’

Over-repayment not to be replaced by an over-repayment charge

6. If the over-repaid amount is not to be replaced
   
  * Change the Y to a N 
  * Select the [OK] button
  These actions will not replace the over-repaid amount with a new over-repayment charge and will automatically delete the work item from the work list

Over-repayment is to be replaced by an over-repayment charge

7. If the over-repaid amount is to be replaced by an over-repayment charge, you do not need to enter a Y as this is already set as the default setting for this field
   
  * The following three fields should then be completed with
  * Tax Year ending
  * Charge Due date (this is the later of 31 January following the end of the tax year to which the over-repaid amount relates and the date the original repayment was issued)
  * Charge amount for the new over-repayment charge
  Then
  * Select the [OK] button
  Note: You must take care to enter the correct tax year, due date and amount due in the appropriate fields in order to avoid customer complaints regarding incorrectly set up over-repayment charges
  These actions will automatically replace all or part of the over-repaid amount with the new over-repayment charge on the SA record and automatically delete the work item from the work list.
  If more than one over-repayment charge is to be created for an over-repaid amount, the function CREATE OVER-REPAYMENT CHARGE must be accessed separately for each charge created. Also irrespective of the number of charges created for one over-repaid amount, the work item will be automatically deleted from the work list when the first charge is created.
