Tax Credits Manual

Stopping tax credits: in year finalisation: finalise (Info)

There is a requirement to finalise a claim in the year in which it has ended, where we have received notification that a claim has been made to Universal Credit (UC) and UC notification of that claim has been received in HMRC.

The system will process ceased awards that have been selected for In Year Finalisation (IYF) utilising RTI data which has been obtained if appropriate.

The system will determine the type of In Year S17 notice to be issued by applying a set of business rules in order to ascertain whether an In Year Auto S17 notice or an In Year Reply Required S17 notice is to be prepared and issued.

The IY S17 Notice asks the claimant to provide or confirm actual income details from the 06/04/UY until the Household End date and to confirm that their circumstances are correct as set out in the Notice.

The system will also record sufficient information about the issued IY S17 Notice to allow a copy to be produced at a later date. Such copies will be requested by the online function ‘Request Re-Issue of Notices’.
