Afternoon all

quick explanation of my situation

1) my son was due to return to college in Sept 2009 - for various reasons he did not take up the place allocated to him - we were entitled to CTC up to April 2010 (if he had stayed on) - we informed HRMC (late - think it was around Nov 2009) & ended up with an overpayment of £2200 which we have been repaying thru our subsequent awards.

2) my wife is now working full time & also taking on a lot of overtime & I have taken a part time evening job (on top of getting my own business off the ground)

3) now we have gone over the £17000 limit (2011/2012) & the WTC from April till now (approx £1000) is an overpayment.

4) we lost everything in 2010, so have no assets - rent, CT & utilities take up most of our income so we have little money spare.


With the award stopped (approx £80.00 per week) things will be very tight - let alone repaying the overpayments. It seems we made the mistake of taking on more employment to try to get back on our feet.


Total overpayment is approx £2000 - the letter states we can make arrangements over 12 months to repay, but to do that would mean approx £170 per month on top of losing £320. I can't see how we can do this.


Any advice would be gratefully received.
