Stopping tax credits: work lists (unprocessed): AA action - change of circumstances

Background

As you are working on the Unprocessed IYS17 work list, you must ensure that the cases have been cleared from the work list when action has been taken on them.

If any work items have not been cleared from the work list when the action has been taken, you must

  • access Function CAPTURE IN YEAR S17 FINALISATION
  • select Process to clear the work item.

When the work item has been cleared from the Unprocessed IYS17 work list, the work item can re-populate the work list with another reason.

For example: The work item has a reason of Uncoc and this is then processed. The work item is then re-populated with a reason of verification failure because the change that was entered has now created a verification failure.

There are two Action Guides that you must follow depending on the reason for the work list item. These Action Guides are

  • TCM0358080 - change of circumstances
  • TCM0358120 - verification failure.
