i dont know what you mean by that , all the letter says i have been overpaid . thats all the information i have
I see. You will have had a notification decision advising you that there has been an overpayment. If there has been no change in circumstances and you have declared everything then you can appeal against this decision. But you should do it quick as you have a limited time by law in which to lodge an appeal. The process is very simple, you write to HMRC and give notice that you wish to appeal. They will notify the Social Security Tribunal who will list the appeal for a hearing. HMRC will provide you and the Tribunal a bundle of documents and if there is anything that you wish to give evidence about you can submit that too. The Tribunal will then decide whether the overpayment from HMRC is correct or not. But the only way to challenge this is with an appeal - if you are in any doubt you can also see the Citizens Advice who may be able to help you prepare for the appeal.
