Stopping Tax credits - Award Declaration - returning award declaration (info)


An Award Declaration can be made

  • in writing, by completing and returning form TC603UD
  • verbally to a Contact Centre
  • verbally or in writing during a local interview at a Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) office or Department of Social Development (DSD) office. These will be forwarded on for scanning at Netherton for Scanning through Rapid Data Capture (RDC).
  • in the course of a Compliance interview

When the Award Declaration has been captured, validation rules will apply and any In Year Finalisation will not process through to finalisation if it

  • is incomplete
  • has a signal set against it
  • has an outstanding COC
  • fails validation.

These cases will create an entry on the Unprocessed In Year S17 work list. Follow the guidance in TCM0358040.
