Launch of The Co-Funded Payroll Scheme Appeals Process

Oct 10, 2022

The Chief Minister has today announced the launch of the Co-Funded Payroll Scheme Appeals Process (CFPS). This meets a commitment of the Government’s plan for the first 100 days in office.

The appeals process will allow claimants the opportunity to challenge repayment requirements and may result in repayment amounts being reassessed. The process will also consider the timeframe over which repayments must be made. This will include an assessment of affordability that is tailored to people’s personal circumstances so that, where money must still be repaid, people are granted a reasonable period of time to repay.

The purpose of the appeals process will be to;

• Review calculations made in determining a repayment requirement to confirm that rules have been appropriately applied.

• Consider new evidence such as revised tax declarations or evidence that prior periods do not provide a consistent comparison.

• Consider whether longer repayment terms would be warranted.

The Chief Minister, Deputy Kristina Moore, said: “As part of our 100-day plan the Treasury Minister and I are incredibly pleased to be launching this appeals process. This will ensure that businesses have been given fair treatment, through a transparent process, and are able to make any repayments within a more compassionate timeframe.

“I am all too aware that people have been worried about these repayment requirements for several months. The process we have established has been designed to bring a swift resolution to appeals while minimising the impact on business owner’s time.

“We are aware that many businesses are still recovering from the impact of Covid and are currently dealing with various global challenges. We are committed to supporting them where we can and enabling a thriving local business environment.”
