Payment - overpayments (F-P): Overpayments - four-week run-on - pay by user requested payment

Reasons to not follow this guidance

You do not need to follow this guidance if

  • you have not been directed here by another piece of guidance
  • the four-week run-on entitlement can be paid by applying a later work end date
  • you have not already calculated the amount of the four-week run-on entitlement and remission.

Checklist

Before you follow this guidance, make sure

  • you have the correct user roles to follow this guidance. Use the B&C Roles and Access Catalogue. You can find this by going to the Benefits & Credits homepage, selecting ‘R’ on the B&C A-Z index, selecting ‘Roles and Access Process’, selecting ‘Roles & Access Catalogue’ from the Related links menu.

Required information

Follow the guidance in TCM0228040 to obtain the following information

  • the amount of the four-week run-on entitlement
  • the amount of the remission
  • the Calculation sheet and casepapers, if you are going to authorise a payment.

Background

The four-week run-on role allows you to pay, and automatically remit, the four-week run-on WTC entitlement.

Each instance of four-week run-on entitlement must be linked to a period number. Up to 12 periods of entitlement are allowed in any one year.

Where a four-week run-on payment crosses tax years - for example, employment ends on 20/03/2011 and the four-week run-on entitlement runs from 21/03/2011 to 14/04/2011 - you must create a user requested payment (URP) for the whole amount of four-week run-on and allocate the payment to the year the customer ended their employment.

Guidance

Note: When sending customer, staff or process data to another individual or team, make sure you follow the latest data security guidelines or contact the Data Guardian or Data Security Team for advice.
