Thousands Due Back-Dated Tax Credit Payments After Hmrc Contractor Blunders

Recommended Posts


Thousands of people who wrongly had tax credits stopped may be able to claim back-dated payments.

Concentrix, which which was supposed to save the government £1 billion by cutting tax credit fraud and overpayment, had its contract terminated on Tuesday after a series of blunders which have left thousands without access to vital cash were uncovered by the BBC.

HMRC has allocated 150 staff to help those who may have been affected and said it will assess cases as quickly as possible. If you believe you had tax credits incorrectly cancelled, call the number on the decision letter and request “mandatory reconsideration”. Explain why you think it is wrong and supply evidence to support this. Appeals take around a month to process but the timelined is not guaranteed.

I wonder how much money this contract actually saved. If you give a target people will naturally try to hit anyway they can.
