Step 2

Note: Cash cheques may have been used as a payment method prior to April 2017, however since April 2017 customers will need to be paid directly into a bank or building society account. Customers will be required to supply us with account details to enable payments to be made.

On the ‘Select Award’ screen

  • select the tax year which relates to the manual payments you noted at step 2 of the guidance you were following
  • select ‘OK’. You’ll be taken to the ‘View Award Period Postings’ screen
  • from the notes you made at step 2 of the guidance you were following, check that all the manual payments have been recorded posted on the schedule. This will be shown as one of the following Posting types
    • ‘MGPC’ for manual payments for Child Tax Credit (CTC)
    • ‘MGPW’ for manual payments for Working Tax Credit (WTC)
    • ‘MGPM’ for multiple manual payments.
      Note: The schedule breaks down the total amount for each manual payment, for example a payment of £1,000 recorded on Household Notes will show as £350, £350 and £300 on the schedule with the same due date.
