Deceased persons: informal payments: P254 payslips: action when you receive P211(Z)


The guidance relating to processes on this page of the TSEM is suspended for the time being as it is under review. This is due to recent changes made to the form R27 and other process changes introduced by the bereavement project. If you have been given other local instructions on the process to follow please refer to these.

Take this action when you receive a form P211(Z).

  • Before completing part (2) of the form, refer to the 133P(X) to ensure that the payment received matches the agreed liability

Use IRIS function INP561 to acknowledge receipt of the P211(Z)

  • If you find that the P211(Z) has been sent to your office in error, ie the administration period is being dealt with elsewhere, do not redirect the P211(Z). Use a form P209 to transfer the payment to the correct office.
  • Note your action on the back of the form

Store the information in an electronic shared folder in Collection reference order for each Account. Do not keep the forms in personal files or working folders or sub folders 133P(X).
